Lung Cancer In Kentucky
Improving Patient Outcomes
Interactive online learning for primary care providers
Kentucky leads the nation in lung cancer incidence and mortality rates, which are closely tied to the state's high adult smoking prevalence. Fortunately, recent years have brought new recommendations and insurance coverage for lung cancer screening, advances in lung cancer treatment, and growing survivorship resources. Given Kentucky's heavy lung cancer burden, concerted efforts are warranted to ensure that these improvements in care reach all at-risk Kentuckians. Primary care providers can play an important role in this effort. "Lung Cancer in Kentucky: Improving Patient Outcomes" educates primary care providers in Kentucky on ways to improve lung cancer care across the continuum. This online continuing education offering was developed by Kentucky Cancer Program at the University of Louisville - as part of the statewide Kentucky LEADS (Lung Cancer Education, Awareness, Detection, and Survivorship) Collaborative. It addresses lung cancer prevention through tobacco cessation, lung cancer screening with low-dose computed tomography (LDCT), shared decision-making, enhancing treatment through collaboration with specialists, and lung cancer survivorship after diagnosis. This interactive and engaging program consists of four lessons that can be completed in individual segments.
This course is designed for physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who practice in primary care settings in Kentucky.
Other providers are welcome to participate as well.
The course takes approximately 1.0 - 2.5 hours. During the course you will watch narrated informational screens, video interviews, shared decision making demonstrations, and view course materials.
You must register, create a user profile, and take a pre-activity questionnaire before you are able to view the course and access the Resource Library. Once each lesson has been completed, you will take a post-test, followed by overall course evaluations, after which you will be able to generate your CME certificate. You will be able to stop the course at any point and resume later if you wish.
At the end of the session the participant should be able to demonstrate the following knowledge and/or skills:
