Increasing Care Team and Community Awareness of Commercial Tobacco Use & Lung Cancer Screening Services
On Demand Learning Session
Lung cancer accounts for most of the cancer deaths in Michigan and early detection is crucial to promoting survival. Effective lung cancer screening with low-dose CT (LDCT) is available, though many who are eligible for screening are not aware. Primary care providers and care teams have an important role in educating patients and referring them to timely lung cancer screening.
Providers and care teams, you are likely already identifying patients who use commercial tobacco products, counseling them, and connecting them with resources to quit. During this session, we will talk about how to use your current processes to identify patients at increased risk for lung cancer who are eligible for screening. We will discuss the process for referring patients to lung cancer screening, details and effectiveness of LDCT screening, and the critical role that you play in early detection and positive patient outcomes.
