Free training available for primary health care professionals
Lung cancer is Australia’s number one cancer killer, with more than 13,250 Australians being diagnosed each year. Some lung cancer symptoms may be easy to recognise, but others can be non-specific and challenging to differentiate from other conditions, resulting in diagnostic delays, more advanced stage cancer and poorer patient outcomes.
Lung Foundation Australia, in collaboration with Cancer Australia, is delighted to launch the CPD Accredited Activity, A Systematic Approach to Investigating Symptoms of Lung Cancer, to support primary healthcare professionals in their application of the clinical guide Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals (the Guide). The eLearning introduces the Guide, underpins its key messages and supports the systematic application of its recommendations with rich, scenario-based learning. The key learning outcomes will assist health professionals in identifying lung cancer, facilitating early and rapid referral into the multidisciplinary diagnostic pathway.
