Research-Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs), now known as Evidence-Based Cancer Control Programs, is a searchable online database that helps public health practitioners and others find and implement cancer control programs that work.
JBA reviewed evidence-based programs for inclusion in RTIPs across topics such as screening, diet and nutrition, and tobacco control.
The project team—
- Coordinated reviews by expert consultants
- Conducted literature searches to identify potential programs through studies published in peer-reviewed journals
- Provided technical assistance to help programs submit information for review
- Developed materials practitioners can use to implement the program with specific populations and in specific settings
Programs were scored on research integrity, intervention impact, and dissemination capability, as well as reach, effectiveness, adoption, and implementation.
