CCPD Stakeholders Sound Off

As part of the planning process for the Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease and Pulmonary Disease (CCPD) grants program, the CCPD Review Committee surveyed stakeholders and took public meeting comments to determine strategic funding priorities. More than 150 stakeholders responded to the survey, designed by PSD’s Epidemiology, Planning and Evaluation (EPE) Branch to solicit quantitative and qualitative input from statewide groups between Dec. 19, 2011 and Jan. 6, 2012. The presentation is embedded below and is also available for download.

Results include:
  • The majority of stakeholders are likely to apply for funding in cross-cutting or cardiovascular disease programs.
  • More than 40 percent of respondents describe their main focus as primary prevention.
  • The majority of stakeholders would most likely apply for CCPD funding for primary prevention.
  • The majority of respondents supported CCPD making incremental increases in primary prevention funding by setting aside a portion of funds for such interventions while continuing to support secondary and tertiary prevention before and after full ACA implementation in 2014. 
  • Nearly 80 percent of stakeholders supported CCPD Review Committee prioritization of funding for primary prevention strategies.
Of 48 respondents providing written comments, themes included:
  • Support for funding primary prevention strategies
  • Support of CCPD funding for primary, secondary, and tertiary prevention strategies
  • Clear definitions for primary, secondary and tertiary prevention
  • Clear definitions of evidence-based practices
  • Allocation of funds toward specific populations, regardless of the prevention level
  • Suggestions on how to review the applications
EPE’s Colleen Kapsimalis presented this information to the CCPD Review Committee on Jan. 13, 2012. Feel free to comment below.
