What is Cancer, Clear & Simple (CC&S)?
Cancer, Clear & Simple (CC&S) is a set of educational materials about cancer. CC&S includes a curriculum, Facilitator Guide and educational handouts. All CC&S materials incorporate health literacy principles and are designed to build knowledge and improve health-related decision-making. CC&S was originally developed for use in rural communities. CC&S has also been adapted for use with other populations and is currently available for both Rural, African American, and Latino populations.

The CC&S curriculum consists of three related, but distinct education modules: Cancer Basics, Cancer Prevention and Cancer Screening. Each module provides culturally appropriate, accessible information while incorporating a limited number of medical concepts and vocabulary. The modules can be used for either group or individual education.
The handouts are one-to-two-page health education tools on a specific topic. Over 40 handouts have been developed and they are available in three types: Cancer Information, Questions to Ask Your Doctor and Healthy Tips & Ideas. The handouts reinforce the same health promotion messages from the CC&S curriculum and can be used either independently or in conjunction with the curriculum.
