ATSDR Cancer Policy Framework

A central theme of ATSDR's Cancer Policy Framework is the use of risk analysis as an organizing construct to promote optimal decisions in the Agency's human health assessment programs. Risk analysis is a multidimensional endeavor encompassing biomedical judgment, peer review, and risk assessment (NRC 1983) as well as risk communication and risk management (CEQ 1989). Accordingly, the Agency's Cancer Policy Framework places emphasis on scientific judgment, peer review, and relevant expertise/knowledge of ATSDR and other federal agencies. As a Public Health Service agency, ATSDR places a preeminent emphasis on disease prevention.

Note: While the original publication dates on some of ATSDR's documents may not appear to be current, the information in the documents is valid and may still provide relevant information.
