About Us

The Oregon Partnership for Cancer Control (OPCC) formed to develop and implement Oregon's Cancer Plan. We are a vibrant partnership organization providing many opportunities to get involved.

The OPCC includes a partnership plan with others committed to reducing the burden of cancer in our state. OPCC's committees are where partner organizations work together to implement Oregon's Comprehensive Cancer Plan. Committees meet regularly and are open to anyone with an interest in the goals of the plan.

The Oregon Partnership for Cancer Control is part of the Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention Section in the Center for Prevention and Health Promotion.

Vision

Our vision for the state of Oregon is a place where:

  • Stakeholders take an integrated and coordinated approach in order to maximize and achieve desired cancer control outcomes
  • Efforts include population-based prevention approaches for cancer
  • Individuals will not get preventable cancer
  • Those individuals with detectable cancers are diagnosed in the earliest stage of the disease
  • Those individuals with treatable cancers are given the highest quality state-of-the art care and rehabilitation necessary to optimize their survival and quality of life.
  • Those individuals in the end stages of incurable cancers are cared for in a way that maximizes the quality of their life and death
  • Full support is given to research directed toward understanding the causes of cancers and toward improving prevention, early detection, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation
  • There will be respect for family and friends who are caregivers of persons with cancer
  • Health care providers will have access to resources to provide evidence-based comprehensive care

* Adopted by the Oregon Partnership for Cancer Control (OPCC) Core Planning Committee, September 2003. The OPCC gives thanks and acknowledgement to the Washington State Comprehensive Cancer Control Partnership (WA CCCP) for its Vision, Mission, Roles and Values document.
