Audit of Lung Cancer Screening Practice in Chest Physicians: An Update

2016-10-27 05:38:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The investigators will conduct nationally representative survey in chest physicians in Egypt in 2016-2017. Self-adminstered questionnaires will be used to assess the physicians' knowledge of lung cancer screening guidelines, beliefs about the effectiveness of screening tests, and ordering of screening chest radiograph, low-dose spiral computed tomography, or sputum cytology in the past 12 months.

Description

Although current practice guidelines do not recommend screening asymptomatic patients for lung cancer, physicians may still order lung cancer screening tests. No recent national survey of health care professionals has focused on lung cancer screening
