Thank you to all who attended the SD CCCP Meeting and contributed to its success. Below are copies of the presentations, the 2013 Fall Meeting Evaluation Report, and the Summary of the SD Cancer Control Plan Self-Assessment.
Listen to the People: Perceptions of the South Dakota Comprehensive Cancer Control Plan
The South Dakota Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (SD CCCP) is designed to impact cancer outcomes by connecting individuals and organizations working in cancer control statewide. The purpose of this evaluation report is to assure the SD CCC Plan 2011‐2015 is congruent with the needs of SD residents. To facilitate this, ten community listening groups were held in three communities throughout SD. Two of the focus groups consisted of health care workers whose comments reflected a statewide perspective. Using a structured focus group guide, participants were asked to provide input on the current SD CCC Plan and to report on the needs of those affected by cancer in their community.

Palliative and End of Life Care in South Dakota
The purpose of this research project was to assess the availability of palliative and end of life (hospice) care in South Dakota (SD). This assessment of services explored whether SD healthcare facilities had: (a) a point of contact for palliative care, hospice services, and advance directives; (b) healthcare providers with specialized training in palliative and hospice care; and (c) a facility‐based process for facilitating advance directives and advance care planning.
- Engaging partners in advance care planning discussions, especially the three largest SD health systems, with the intent of establishing patient care model standards by 2015.
- Promoting involvement from community groups in the advance care planning process by seeking their input in the establishment of patient care expectations.
- Developing end of life and palliative care training and education for healthcare providers that is accessible to rural and frontier care settings.
Statewide Capacity for Colorectal Cancer Screening Report
South Dakota State University completed the Statewide Capacity for Colorectal Cancer Screening Report for the SD CCCP. The purpose of this study was to replicate components of a national study of colorectal cancer (CRC) screening capacity in order to evaluate the state of South Dakota’s current CRC screening practices and capacity indicators.
Priority Recommendations with further details in the Report:
1. Educate healthcare providers in the state of South Dakota about current clinical practice guidelines for CRC.
-Screening tests for CRC that follow the guidelines.2. Develop CRC screening protocols and educational resources for healthcare facilities and providers. Disseminate these resources as part of a CRC screening tool kit.3. Educate the people of SD on the importance of CRC screening and screening options using population-based media and other innovative approaches that reach large numbers of age-eligible community members.4. Educate healthcare providers and systems about colonoscopy quality measures in an effort to increase participation in these initiatives.
-Screening tests that do not follow the current CRC screening guidelines.
-Available resources to assist with CRC screening cost barriers.
Healthcare Provider Knowledge, Attitudes, Practices, and Beliefs about Colorectal Cancer Screening Report
The purpose of this project was to explore healthcare provider knowledge, attitudes, practices, and beliefs related to CRC screening.
Summary and Recommendations:
1. Offer continuing education for all healthcare providers specifically related to CRC screening guidelines with emphasis on age and risk guidelines and the lack of evidence for continued use of guaiac of DRE testing.
-Publish educational pieces on current CRC screening guidelines in journals and other places that
reach South Dakota healthcare providers.
-Offer public education related to CRC screening methods and the importance of early detection.
2. Lead policy efforts to influence insurers to cover screening colonoscopy per current guidelines.
3. Further study of colonoscopy preparation to determine actual problems such as timing of preparations, amount of preparation, quality of preparation methods, and both tolerance and adherence to preparatory procedures.
