Dakota Cancer Collaborative on Translational Activity (DaCCoTA)
The goal of DaCCoTA is to bring together
researchers and clinicians with diverse experience from
across the region to develop unique and innovative means
of combating cancer in North and South Dakota.
It is believed that advances in cancer treatment will
come from broad approaches by collective groups of
clinical and basic researchers who are focused on
conducting clinical/translational research.
Center for Rural Health's Role in DaCCoTA
The Center for Rural Health is involved in two of the six
core project areas of the DaCCoTA project:
Community Engagement and Outreach Core
This core focuses on engaging populations that are
disproportionately affected by cancer with the
long-term goal of developing community-based research
priorities that can be translated into improved health
Tracking and Evaluation Core
This core supports the DaCCoTA by tracking progress,
monitoring outcomes, and providing on-going
assessments. The evaluation views the DaCCoTA as a
holistic system with integrated components including
specialized cores, advisory committees, and community
boards working together to support cancer translational
research. Following a system approach, the Tracking and
Evaluation Core is integrated into all aspects of
DaCCoTA planning and implementation.
