Appendix A

Stakeholder Input

A public workshop titled How to Transform Cancer Control was organized in June 2018. One-half of that workshop was focused on “What have we learned in the past decade?” and included the following discussion questions: “What major insights, developments, and barriers have led to the current realities of understanding, practice, and policies across the cancer control continuum?” and, “How can policies and programmatic efforts that have not met their stated aspirations and goals for cancer control inform and guide our next steps?” The second half of the workshop was centered on what should be done differently, and the focus questions were: “What strategic capabilities could maximize the scientific, technologic, clinical, field level, regulatory, and financial results, and their unified impact on cancer control?” and, “The current mismatches in goals and implementation as well as with the supporting information (technologies) across different stakeholder groups hinder progress throughout the cancer control continuum. What should be done differently?”

The following stakeholders provided input and participated in discussions, along with other members of the public who also attended the workshop.

Throughout history, perhaps no other disease has generated the level of social, scientific, and political discourse or has had the degree of cultural significance as cancer. A collective in the truest sense of the word, "cancer" is a clustering of different diseases that afflict individuals in different ways. Its burdens are equally broad and diverse, from the physical, financial, and psychological tolls it imposes on individuals to the costs it inflicts upon the nation’s clinical care and public health systems, and despite decades of concerted efforts often referred to as the "war on cancer", those costs have only continued to grow over time. The causes and effects of cancer are complex—in part preventable and treatable, but also in part unknown, and perhaps even unknowable.

Guiding Cancer Control defines the key principles, attributes, methods, and tools needed to achieve the goal of implementing an effective national cancer control plan. This report describes the current structure of cancer control from a local to global scale, identifies necessary goals for the system, and formulates the path towards integrated disease control systems and a cancer-free future. This framework is a crucial step in establishing an effective, efficient, and accountable system for controlling cancer and other diseases.
