Screening Center Resources
We know that lung cancer screening can save lives when carried out responsibly and following current best practices. For guidance on how to develop a good quality, responsible screening center, we offer documents and resources to help.
National Framework for Excellence in Lung Cancer Screening and Continuum of Care
Developed with a panel of thoracic surgeons, oncologists and nurse navigators, the National Framework outlines the elements of a responsibly done, high quality lung cancer screening program, the rights of the public to know about screening and what we plan to do to help support responsible screening

NCCN Patient Guidelines

Rescue Lung Rescue Life: Lung Cancer Screening Program Toolkit
A comprehensive toolkit created by the Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, MA. This collection of resources includes sample forms, sample letters, databases for tracking patient information in a comprehensive screening program and more. Please contact directly for the materials.
International Early Lung Cancer Action Program
The website of the International Early Lung Cancer Action Program (IELCAP) includes protocol documents, FAQs and publications on lung cancer screening.
Smoking Cessation Resources
A good quality lung cancer screening program refers appropriate candidates to smoking cessation programs. If your center does not have a comprehensive smoking cessation program, here are some resources for your screening patients:
The Ex Plan: A web-based tool from Legacy helps support those who want to quit at every step of the way.
1-800-QUIT-NOW: A quitline is a tobacco cessation service available through a toll-free telephone number. Quitlines are staffed by counselors trained specifically to help smokers quit by creating a personalized plan based on history and motivators.
