NLCRT Areas of Focus
The National Lung Cancer Roundtable advances initiatives that focus on provider engagement and outreach, tobacco treatment in the context of lung cancer screening, lung cancer in women, shared decision-making about screening, implementation of screening programs, access to high quality screening, policy action, triage for appropriate diagnostic evaluation and therapy, and an end to the stigma and nihilism associated with a diagnosis of lung cancer, which pervades every aspect of this disease.
Launched in March 2017, the NLCRT currently includes more than 80 member organizations across the country, among them clinical professionals, researchers, lung cancer advocates and patients, professional societies, cancer centers, academic institutions, health plans, federal agencies, and corporate associates.
