Partnership Guiding Principles: We are collaborative, respectful, inventive, and patient-centered. We share resources, a deep sense of commitment, and responsibility for taking action.
Key stakeholders from four Nebraska organizations joined forces to provide leadership in the development of the 2011-2016 Nebraska Breast Cancer Control Plan: the local affiliate of the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen® Great Plains, and two programs based in the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services: the Every Woman Matters Program, and the Nebraska Comprehensive Cancer Control Program which partners closely with NC2 (Nebraska Cancer Coalition).
The leadership team was joined by a group of highly-dedicated and selfless individuals representing Nebraska’s accredited cancer centers, district and local health departments, hospitals, health centers, collaborating businesses and service organizations, the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) and Creighton University, medical clinics and practitioners, breast cancer survivors, family members and volunteers, and the Nebraska Office of Health Disparities and Health Equity.
Now that the plan is in the implementation phase, the Partnership continues to work together to:
- Identify gaps and needs
- Improve the quality of services
- Utilize and build on strengths
- Decrease duplication of efforts
- Streamline processes and increase efficiencies
Note: The 2011-2016 Nebraska Breast Cancer Control Plan supports complementary goals and objectives of the Nebraska Cancer Plan.
As implementation of the plan moves forward, the Nebraska Breast and Cervical Cancer Advisory Committee will provide ongoing recommendations, offering a direct link to breast cancer control activities occurring at the regional level.
