Implementing Smoking Cessation into Delivery of Lung Cancer Screening


by Steven Zeliadt, PhD
Seminar date: 3/23/2017

Description: This presentation will describe challenges associated with talking to smokers about smoking cessation during the lung cancer screening process. We will highlight findings from our qualitative study which received HSR&D Paper-of-the-Year, and present findings from a recently completed pilot study of an intervention based on those findings, and describe the design of a recently funded pragmatic trial partnering with the VA Quitline that will further test this intervention. Intended audience: Investigators interested in qualitative research, lung cancer screening, or smoking cessation.
