Resources on Lung Programs

Engaging Patients and Assisting Primary Care Providers in Lung Cancer Screening

The PIH Health Lung Cancer Screening Program improves the quality and timeliness of lung cancer care, as well as communication among the multidisciplinary treatment team. This nurse practitioner-run program utilizes an enrollment method—primary care practitioners (PCPs) can refer or patients can self-refer. The program schedules screenings, provides shared decision-making counseling and manages ongoing follow-up—relieving pressure on busy primary care providers. Recipient of a 2015 ACCC Innovator Award.
