Lung Cancer Disparities: Addressing Gaps and Opportunities to Improve Health Outcomes and Health Equity Among Low-Income Populations and Other Populations with Low Socioeconomic Status (SES) Characteristics (Part 2)
September 22, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
LIVE Session Thursday, September 22, 2022 at 11:30 AM CT
As noted in a recent Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) article, an important question asked, “Is lung cancer screening reaching individuals who can gain the most from it?” And the most recent report revealed that inadequate access to healthcare services due to geographic, financial, or logistical challenges continues to remain a commonly cited barrier to cancer screening experienced by populations with low socioeconomic status (SES) characteristics. This includes low-income populations, populations without a usual source of healthcare services, uninsured, underinsured, and populations residing in rural or remote areas (including medically underserved areas), as well as members of some racial/ethnic minority populations are those who experience significant disparities in cancer screening and follow-up care.
Topics include: Lung cancer disparities and screening eligibility criteria, cancer survivorship, as well as utilizing results from the American Lung Cancer “State of Lung Cancer Report” to improve community-clinical linkages.
