NCI has redesigned its Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. web portal. The website—which provides information and tools for health professionals involved in cancer control—has a new look and feel, as well as a new topic area, more planning and evaluation resources, and additional intervention program criteria to help translate research into action.

The updated site is designed to make it easier for cancer control planners, program staff, and researchers to find the information and tools they need to design, implement, and evaluate evidence-based cancer control programs.

New features on the site include

  • Obesity Topics: Links to obesity resources, including statistics, programs, research synthesis, and planning tools;
  • RE-AIM: Resources for those wanting to apply the RE-AIM (Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation, and Maintenance) framework for evaluating health promotion and chronic disease programs; and
  • Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs): Obesity intervention programs and added RE-AIM scores.
