On Demand: The Future of Lung Cancer Screening for All Communities in RI: Where We Are and Where We Need to Be

Brown University via Independent


Program Release: June 25, 2021 Expiration Date: June 25, 2023 *This activity is a recording of a live event that took place on 6/17/21 Estimated time to complete: 90 Minutes There are no prerequisites for participation Jointly Provided by 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

  1. Describe the new USPSTF Lung Cancer Screening recommendations.

  6. Formulate a plan in your practice to assess newly updated eligibility for lung cancer screening.
  7. Formulate a plan to integrate lung cancer screening eligibility alerts into electronic health records.
