Overview

Join the Rhode Island Department of Health together with a cohort of local and national cancer prevention educational partners to learn about the importance of annual screening for individuals at high risk for lung cancer, as well as the factors that contribute toward the low lung cancer screening rate in Rhode Island.

This activity will dive deep into the barriers that healthcare professionals and patients are currently facing; such as challenges in navigating the shared decision-making process, how to apply the recently updated U.S. Preventable Services Task Force (USPSTF) lung cancer screening guidelines and manage abnormal results,, insurance policy challenges, as well as the all-important/oppressive/suffocating stigma carried by/surrounding lung cancer while learning about resources that are available to help.

Learning how to recognize and address any combination of these barriers within practice and with patients has the potential to powerfully impact lung cancer screening rates, and ultimately make a positive, lasting impact on the future of early lung cancer detection and patient quality of life, outcomes and survival.  

In Collaboration with these Educational Partners
