How We Track Progress
The NYS Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan Dashboard is an on-line, visual presentation of Cancer Plan tracking indicator data at the state level that includes baseline data, 2023 objectives, and data for 43 tracking indicators from three Plan Priority Areas: Health Promotion & Cancer Prevention; Early Detection; and Survivorship.
We use information from the Dashboard to track statewide progress on Plan objectives, monitor key indicators of interest, support internal organizational decision-making, and more!
UPDATING THE PLAN
The Plan is updated every 5 years with input from Consortium Members and Subject Matter Experts. We are currently in the planning stages for the next iteration of the Plan (2024) and welcome your feedback. Stay tuned for information in the Consortium’s e-blasts or contact us to find out ways that you can be involved.
