Program Use Agreement

The Evidence-Based Cancer Control Programs (EBCCP) website was developed to provide program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to evidence-based programs and their materials that can be used to implement these programs in the populations and settings in which they were originally tested.

The EBCCP website neither endorses nor recommends any of the products, processes, or services listed. Rather the information provided is to help you make an informed decision about the best program options to meet your cancer control needs. The views and opinions of authors expressed on this website do not necessarily state nor reflect those of the U.S. Government, and they may not be used for advertising or product endorsement purposes.

It is not the intention of EBCCP to provide specific medical advice to individuals, but rather to provide users with information to better understand complex cancer problems at the community, regional and state level, and options for addressing these problems with evidence-based programs. It is also important to understand that the program's efficacy and/or effectiveness was evaluated within a research study, which may be a relatively controlled or artificial setting. It is expected that users of a particular evidence-based program may need to adapt it for their own target population and/or setting.

Program Adaptation Guidelines are made available by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and are intended for anyone adapting or implementing an evidence-based program found on the EBCCP website. While use of the Guidelines is not mandatory, it is strongly recommended that those choosing to use the program materials found on this website review these Guidelines carefully. The Guidelines provide tips on how to ensure a program's optimal success in your community's setting when adapting materials that were designed and tested within a research study.
