2004 Camden County Cancer Capacity and Needs Assessment: The Next Steps Jean F. Mouch, MD, MPH Camden County Coalition Coordinator April 6, 2005
2002 NJ Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan – NJCCCP History The CDC defines Comprehensive Cancer Control as an integrated and coordinated approach to reduce the incidence, morbidity and mortality of cancer through prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation. Office for Cancer Control and Prevention with the NJ-CEED -- first ever statewide capacity and needs assessment for each county from May 2003-Dec. 2004
2004 Camden County Cancer Capacity and Needs Assessment Section 1: Demographic Profile Section 2: Overview of Overarching Issues Section 3: Cancer Burden Section 4: Discussion, Analysis and Recommendations.
Findings at the Camden County Level: Top four cancers – Breast, Prostate, Lung and Colorectal Cancers – 55.3% of new cancers in women and 57.4% of new cancers in men The Seven Priority Cancers of NJCCCP cover 62.5% of new cancers in men and 60.7% of new cancers in women with a total number of survivors = 11,555 as of Jan Disparities in cancer rates and % of late stage at time of diagnosis, involve minority groups of African Americans, Hispanics, residents living below the poverty level, and uninsured
continuing the major findings….. Services for diagnosis, treatment, and care of those with cancer are good in the county Screening and prevention strategies for cancer need greater support and expansion e.g. Cancer Education and Early Detection. Cancer Resource Database of New Jersey has been created – 309 county participants in the survey work to identify programs, services, and extent of access to healthcare. Though we have a good baseline of cancer incidence/mortality rates and staging, the baseline for screening, prevention, and education is over 10 years old.
Recommendations….. Concentrate on the top 4 Cancers Follow the NJ-CCCP strategies for County Two principles of implementation: (1) all general awareness, education, and screening strategies reach out to adults 18+, and health care providers (2) primary prevention strategies provided for all school age children and youth e.g. not starting to smoke and smoking cessation.
…for County and Local Priorities General Awareness and Education for NJCCCP via coalitions and ACS activities; via presentations to major health care provider groups; via work with CCDHHS on their CHIP Research Study on Primary Care Providers and Cancer Prevention, Screening, and Treatment Continue to strengthen coalition work for Cancer Plan at local levels e.g. directory
Regional approach in Burlington, Camden, and Gloucester Counties
The Mission of the Camden County Cancer Coalition is to effectively and efficiently support cancer prevention, education, early detection and advocacy for all residents in the county to help reduce the cancer burden. Camden County Cancer Coalition March 29, 2005
Provisional Goal #1: The Camden County Cancer Coalition will serve as a forum to bring together information sharing and project/program collaboration on cancer care efforts of both public and private agencies and health providers in the county in order to reduce the cancer burden by implementing the 2004 Camden County Capacity and Needs Assessment recommendations.

Provisional Goal #2 The Camden County Cancer Coalition will identify priorities from the Camden Cancer Capacity and Needs Assessment Report for 2005, and set a yearly plan to implement the recommendations of the report. Objective 2.1 Each quarter increase the screening for prostate, breast, and colorectal among minority groups, uninsured, and low income groups, especially working with CEED. Objective 2.2 As a Cancer Coalition, work with the Communities Against Tobacco and R.E.B.E.L. groups to decrease the number of residents who smoke, on one joint project a year.
