Breast Cancer Screening Intervention Programs – RTIPS
Description of Resource:
Research-tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs) is a searchable database of cancer control interventions and program materials and is designed to provide program planners and public health practitioners easy and immediate access to research-tested materials. “Research-tested” means that the program was tested and has research findings that have been published in a peer-reviewed journal. Many RTIPs are directly linked to associated Community Guide findings. Programs are reviewed by James Bell Associates, Inc., which is responsible for coordinating the review of programs submitted to RTIPs and assigning the research products and publications from each intervention to a panel of experts in the field for peer review. Interventions are scored on the following criteria: research integrity, intervention impact, and dissemination capability, as well as reach, effectiveness, adoption, and implementation. Once reviewed, programs are posted on the RTIPs Web site, and associated materials are made available for use.
