The Lung Cancer Policy Network has published ‘Learning from implementation’ policy report in Arabic, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese.

Originally launched in 2022, the Network’s report showcases the wealth of research on low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening and includes four practical lessons that provide a blueprint for the development and implementation of targeted screening programmes for lung cancer. The report also includes 15 case studies that demonstrate the successful implementation of screening around the world.

The report draws on several decades of implementation research to propose four important lessons from existing LDCT screening programmes:

  • tailor eligibility criteria for screening to reach people at the highest risk of lung cancer
  • develop targeted outreach to address potential barriers to participation in lung cancer screening
  • amplify the impact of lung cancer screening by integrating it into other public health initiatives
  • ensure the full integration of lung cancer screening into health systems.
