Join the Lung Cancer Policy Network on 27 September (14:00–15:00 BST, 15:00–16:15 CEST) for a virtual round table: turning recommendations into the implementation of lung cancer screening in the EU.

Lung cancer accounts for around one fifth of all cancer-related deaths and incurs the greatest economic burden of all cancers. The case for targeted lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) is well-evidenced, with screening offering a critical opportunity to improve survival. However, there is clear scope for governments to increase investment in implementation across Europe.

Implementation of LDCT screening for lung cancer has been established in some countries. While these are currently the exception, they provide useful learnings about  how to address barriers to implementation and optimise the success of future screening programmes.

The round table will cover topics including:

  • the importance of an EU recommendation for lung cancer screening
  • key considerations for optimising screening implementation
  • showcasing successful screening implementation across the EU.

The free virtual event will include an opportunity for questions and discussion and will feature the following speakers: Brian Ward (European Respiratory Society, UK), Aoife McNamara (Global Lung Cancer Coalition, Ireland), Dr Hilary Robbins (International Agency for Research on Cancer, France), Prof. David Baldwin (University of Nottingham, UK), Ebba Hallersjö Hult (Vision Zero Cancer, Sweden), Dr Ugo Pastorino (Istituto Tumori, Italy) and Prof. Witold Rzyman (University of Gdańsk, Poland).
