To further build on its Lung cancer screening implementation toolkit and corresponding implementation framework, the Lung Cancer Policy Network is pleased to publish its series of six supporting policy briefs in Arabic, French, Simplified Chinese and Spanish.

The policy briefs, originally published in 2023, have been developed to support those involved in the planning and delivery of lung cancer screening programmes by providing a deeper exploration of the six most important aspects of screening implementation, aligned with the six domains of the implementation framework.

Each brief provides key insights and considerations for the effective, equitable and sustainable implementation of lung cancer screening programmes. The policy briefs also present case studies from countries where implementation is underway, and provide policy recommendations to facilitate the successful implementation of lung cancer screening programmes.

The policy briefs focus on governance, workforce and technical capacity, financial planning, eligibility and recruitment, developing a clear protocol for LDCT screening and data monitoring and evaluation. They can be downloaded using the links below.
