7th Lung Cancer Screening & Continuum of Care
ACI is excited to announce our 7th Lung Cancer Screening & Continuum of Care Conference on December 12-13, 2018. A dedicated forum to learn and network with representatives from organizations nationwide that are prepared to deliver superior service in thoracic oncology.
Our event will be an exploration of techniques and policy changes to better fit lung screening programs through case studies, research findings and organizational models from renowned healthcare and radiology institutions. The top thoracic oncology programs in the country will showcase their successes and share strategies in achieving excellence in patient care and cost-effective management.
This two-day event will focus on implementing lung screening programs and services to maximize competitive advantage, meet increased demand and exceed patient satisfaction. The goal of this event is to bring industry leaders together, highlight the best practice achievements, and discuss the current issues and developments in imaging services for the thoracic oncology community.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. This largely stems from lung cancer’s minimal symptoms in its early stages, which is when the disease is most treatable. For this reason, there is a push for regions to offer screening services for their populations, enabling potential patients to receive care at the most opportune time. Providing this service to potential patients comes with its own challenges, such as motivating patients to get screened regularly, generating funding for these services, raising awareness in your community and many more.
