- Patient and Provider Experiences with Comprehensive Lung Cancer Screening Program
This article describes the organizational- and patient-level experiences with the VA Lung Cancer Screening Demonstration Project (LCSDP), and estimates the number of VA patients who may be screening candidates. Findings showed that participants in the LCSDP found implementing a comprehensive lung cancer screening program to be challenging and complex, requiring new tools (e.g., electronic tools to...

- Lung Cancer Screening Programs May Have Unintended Consequences on Beliefs about Smoking Cessation
This study aimed to learn from patients who were offered screening how the availability of screening influenced their motivations regarding smoking cessation. Findings showed that current smokers attached exaggerated personal benefits to lung cancer screening. Misperceptions about susceptibility to harms from tobacco can be reinforced and potentially exacerbated by screening due to existing cognit...

- Underuse of Colorectal Cancer Screening among Healthy Veterans and Overuse among Unhealthy Veterans
This study examined whether the upper age cutoff of the colorectal cancer (CRC) screening quality measure is associated with overuse of screening among 70- to 75-year-olds who are in poor health (limited life expectancy, but within the target age range of the measure) – and underuse in those older than age 75 who are in good health (longer life expectancy, but outside the target age range of the m...

- Home-Based Colorectal Cancer Screening Significantly Improves Screening Rates among Overdue Veterans in a Rural State
This study sought to determine whether a simple 1-step mailing of a fecal immunochemical test (FIT) accompanied by educational materials would improve colorectal cancer (CRC) screening rates in Veterans who were overdue compared to Veterans who received educational materials only and to Veterans who received no mailings. Findings showed that mailing FITs and educational materials to Veterans overd...
