Presentation of LuCE’s 4th report on Early Diagnosis and Screening on November 6th 2019 at the European Parliament in Brussels.
This edition of report focusses on early diagnosis and screening in lung cancer. By a comprehensive review of scientific publications on these two matters, together with a survey responded by over 360 patients across Europe, this report aims to highlight the current challenges that lung cancer community is facing in terms of delivering fasters and more precise diagnosis, as well as to analyse the current implementation of screening programmes across Europe. It also focuses on the current knowledge and education needs of patients regarding diagnosis and screening.
In this report, we present data regarding lung cancer early diagnosis and screening, and show valuable information provided by patient advocates, lung cancer experts and, of course, patients with lung cancer from across Europe. Thanks to these participants, we have been able to provide a bigger and clearer picture of the current situation, as well as better define our priorities.
We believe that working together and focussing on the reality and needs of patients is the best way to address these issues. Therefore, we encourage you to read this report and to carefully consider the patient insight provided regarding diagnosis and screening.
The report was launched at the European parliament in Brussels November 6th.
We also encourage you to access our previous reports so as to better understand our position on the most relevant challenges for people with lung cancer.
