In 2013, the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommended lung cancer screening with low dose computed tomography for specific individuals at high risk of developing lung cancer. However, there are many challenges with broad implementation of lung cancer screening in clinical practice. The National Cancer Policy Forum workshop, Implementation of Lung Cancer Screening, will examine these challenges and consider potential actions to improve implementation. Topics to be discussed include reviewing best practices for lung cancer screening, addressing health disparities and shared decision making, incorporating smoking cessation support for current smokers, and monitoring the outcomes of screening.
The workshop will take place June 20-21 at the Keck Center in Washington, DC. Participants are welcome to attend in person or watch via live webcast.
The Hong Kong Society of Behavioral Health is pleased to announce a new workshop, Interdisciplinary Approaches on Behavioral Health and Behavioral Interventions, which will be held July 10-15 at the Chinese University of Hong Kong’s JC School of Public Health and Primary Care.
