Expressions of interest open for lung cancer screening research project

Lung cancer screening is an important opportunity to detect lung cancer early when treatment is most likely to be successful.  

It is important, however, that lung cancer screening is implemented in a way that ensures equitable access and participation for all population groups, including those from culturally and linguistically diverse communities.  

Researchers from the University of Melbourne, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Cancer Council Victoria, invite health care providers (general practitioners, nurses, practice managers) who work in a primary health or community health setting to take part in an interview about lung cancer screening. 

We want to learn from the workforce that provides care and support to culturally and linguistically diverse communities about their views on lung cancer screening. We also aim to understand what tools, materials, and resources they think are needed to facilitate its implementation.

Participants may take part in an interview as an individual (up to 45 minutes) or as part of a group with colleagues (up to 1.5 hours). All participants will receive a $150 gift voucher as an acknowledgment of ther time. 

To take part in the study, please complete the expression of interest form here.
