A CIS is a dedicated service established to provide comprehensive, accurate and reliable information about cancer and cancer control to anyone who asks. This one-on-one service can be provided by telephone, email, internet, mail, fax or by personal visit. The service is free and literature may be provided to users. 

If your CIS is still in the planning stages, your answers to the following questions should reflect what your organization is planning to provide when it gets started. If your CIS is already in operation, your answers should reflect the current services being offered by your organization. Please check the checkbox to continue to the next section.
