Our October 6-7, 2017 conference has concluded.

The 3rd Annual Collaborating for Improved Screening and Care Conference will bring together healthcare professionals from lung cancer screening and care programs across the country to meet, share lessons learned, troubleshoot problems and identify continued areas of need in lung cancer screening programs.

This conference is designed for healthcare professionals – including physicians, nurses, nurse navigators, PAs, social workers and other clinical and administrative support staff involved directly in lung cancer screening and treatment programs or peripheral activities such as the provision of referrals to screening, smoking cessation services, and follow up care.

After completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Create a strategy to improve workflow and outcomes in a lung cancer screening program
  • Create a comprehensive patient education strategy for those at high risk for lung cancer
  • Identify at least three program elements to increase appropriate provider referral
  • Describe appropriate molecular testing in early detection of lung cancer and corresponding treatments
