The Lung Cancer Framework aims to improve the outcomes and experiences of people affected by lung cancer in Australia by supporting uptake of the Principles for best practice management of lung cancer in Australia (Principles).
A mixed methods program of work, led by Cancer Australia, included:
The Demonstration Project evaluation identified a number of best practice strategies, tools and resources to optimise delivery of lung cancer care via quality improvement mechanisms. The systematic reviews indicated the Principles are associated with improved outcomes and experiences across a range of clinical and process outcomes. The rapid scoping identified the need for three resources to support implementation: A framework outlining the Principles and supporting evidence, a quick reference guide for healthcare professionals, and a consumer guide. The national summit brought together health professionals, service providers, consumers and policy makers to share opportunities and strategies to support national uptake of the Principles.
The Lung Cancer Framework is an evidence-based, national resource for health professionals and service providers who are involved in the care and treatment of people affected by lung cancer across Australia. The Lung Cancer Framework supports those involved in lung cancer care to adopt multi-level strategies to optimise service delivery.
