Every two and a half minutes, someone receives a diagnosis of lung cancer in the United States. Each day, nearly 400 people succumb to lung cancer. While the survival rate for lung cancer—the leading cause of cancer mortality—has markedly increased over the past 5 years, gaps in early diagnosis, treatment options and access, survival rate, and more remain for underserved populations, including those of varying racial and ethnic groups. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncological treatment for lung cancer, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis, clinical management and treatment, prognosis, and survival rate.
In this CME Outfitters podcast, expert faculty will review recent data and discuss the impact of biases, disparities, and health inequities that reduce the quality of oncology care for underserved racial and ethnic underserved patients with lung cancer. This program will set the stage for intervention, empowering attendees to recognize and consider factors to improve lung cancer treatment.
At the end of this CME/CE activity, participants should be able to understand and acknowledge the influence of bias, disparities, and inequities on lung cancer care.
