Principles and Applications of Cancer Prevention and Control Interventions
This chapter sets forth the principles of cancer prevention and control sciences, with a special emphasis on intervention. It begins with some historical background from which these principles have evolved. It then presents an overview of cancer control interventions and some accomplishments in cancer prevention and control to date. It describes a cancer control research framework that has been useful over the past decade in strategic planning and in directing research and application programs at a national level. Finally, placing the practice of cancer control research within this framework, the chapter highlights where modern cancer prevention and control science is likely to have the largest impact on cancer at both the individual and population levels.
