The Lung Cancer Policy Network joined this year’s European Lung Cancer Congress to collaborate, network, meet members and showcase our activities in supporting screening implementation. And we were delighted to be accepted for a poster presentation on the Network’s implementation framework for LDCT screening and corresponding digital toolkit.

We welcomed the chance to discuss the presentation with attendees while gaining further insights about ongoing implementation challenges around the world. Importantly, there were several sessions focused on the experiences of people with lung cancer; these sessions looked at how care practices can be improved to deliver a more holistic and person-centred approach.

Many Network members were in attendance to share their expertise, including:

  • Prof Guilia Veronesi, who led a panel discussion on therapeutic approaches for different lung cancer subtypes
  • Prof Herbert Loong, who discussed his career experiences in a young oncologists session

The Congress is an important annual event where experts from Europe and beyond can discuss the latest developments in lung cancer care and share insights on how to address the global burden of lung cancer.

Recently, the Network also participated in a panel discussion at the European Congress of Radiology. We look forward to connecting further with members and the wider lung cancer community at the upcoming 1st AGILEᴰˣᴿˣ Conference, 45th International Conference on Screening for Lung Cancer in May and the World Conference on Lung Cancer in September.
