The Lung Cancer Policy Network identifies lessons learnt from successful lung cancer screening implementation in a new report

3 August 2022

As secretariat to the Lung Cancer Policy Network, HPP is proud to share the publication of its inaugural report, Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation.

The report, which was launched on World Lung Cancer Day, showcases the wealth of existing research on the implementation of lung cancer screening. It includes 15 best-practice case studies of successful screening programmes from around the world, and provides four lessons that governments and other institutions can use to develop their own targeted screening programmes for lung cancer.

There is widespread and compelling evidence that low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) can be used to offer safe screening to people at high risk of developing lung cancer. It is time to drive this forward to bring real change to the detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, for the benefit of all.

Lung cancer screening: learning from implementation was developed with contributions from Network members, who are world-renowned experts in lung cancer. Read the report below:
