Nine Habits of Successful Coalitions
Nine Habits of Successful Comprehensive Cancer Control Coalitions, 2nd Edition. The Nine Habits were developed utilizing information from evaluation of the attributes of high-performing comprehensive cancer control (CCC) coalitions, real-life experiences of CCC coalitions over the past seven years, and a 2018 literature review. The guide is a “must-have” resource because it helps to build the capacity of Comprehensive Cancer Control coalitions and other cancer-related organizations, from empowering leadership to setting and implementing priorities. The guide was made possible through the collaboration of the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partnership, with leadership in development from Strategic Health Concepts and the American Cancer Society.
