Implementation of Lung Cancer Screening Proceedings

Broad implementation of lung cancer screening is complex, and the National Cancer Policy Forum held a workshop, “Implementation of Lung Cancer Screening,” to examine the opportunities and challenges involved in developing effective lung cancer screening programs in clinical practice.

At the workshop, experts discussed the current evidence base for lung cancer screening, best practices for screening programs, incorporation of shared decision-making and smoking cessation services in screening, and assessment of patient outcomes, quality, and value in lung cancer screening programs; and research needs that could improve implementation efforts. These proceedings chronicle the presentations and discussions at the workshop. A free PDF version of the workshop proceedings is available once you have created a free National Academy Press account.
