While clinical guidelines for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) provide recommendations on specific individual components of care and advocate multidisciplinary collaboration, guidance on multidisciplinary care spanning the complete patient journey is lacking. Quality-focused recommendations for the multidisciplinary team, along with selected clinical criteria for ideal NSCLC care, were compiled, and a new set of metrics encompassing the entire care continuum was proposed. These metrics were used to set a new benchmark for ideal NSCLC care through the Association of Community Cancer Centers’ (ACCC) national quality care initiative for patients with advanced (stage III/IV) NSCLC.
