Maine Primary Care Provider Lung Cancer Screening Survey

About This Grant:

Lung cancer screening using Low-Dose Computed Tomography (LDCT) is a new intervention that has been shown to reduce lung cancer mortality. However, LDCT screening is complex, and early experience suggests that primary care physicians (PCPs) are not prepared to implement this intervention effectively. The Maine Primary Care Provider Lung Cancer Screening Survey will measure the knowledge, attitudes, and practices of primary care physicians (PCPs) in order to understand physician-level barriers to effective implementation of LDCT screening, and to develop strategies to address these barriers as part of the Maine Lung Cancer Coalition (MLCC).
