Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation
The Lung Cancer Policy Network has published its first report, Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation, to coincide with World Lung Cancer Day. The report showcases the wealth of existing research on low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) screening for lung cancer, and includes 15 case studies from around the world that demonstrate the success of screening implementation programmes. It is co-authored by over 40 world-renowned experts in lung cancer.
There is widespread and compelling evidence that LDCT can be used to offer safe screening among people at high risk of developing lung cancer. We hope that policymakers and the wider cancer community will use this report in their efforts to advance the implementation of screening, to bring real change to lung cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment.
Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation (2022)
The Lung Cancer Policy Network developed this report to highlight the wealth of research in the implementation of lung cancer screening, supported by a variety of global case studies. The report also provides four practical lessons that provide a blueprint for governments and other institutions to build their own targeted screening programmes.Download
