Lung Cancer

In June 2014, a new Working Group was established to address concerns about delays in the diagnosis and start of treatment for patients who have symptoms of lung cancer.

Anecdotal evidence from Cancer Patient Navigators, the results of a chart review of lung cancer surgical patients in Capital Health, and results from a patient and family focus group and an online survey, are helping to inform the process. Nova Scotia is also learning from similar projects and experiences occurring in other provinces.
The goal is to have draft recommendations and the external review by health professionals and cancer patients and families finalized early this year.
