Lung Cancer Screening Videos
This video was developed by the Task Force to provide primary care physicians with key information about lung cancer screening. The video references the Task Force’s 2016 lung cancer guideline recommendations. The video explains disease progression; lung cancer screening; and the Task Force lung cancer screening guideline recommendations, including the overall benefits and harms of screening.
"The Task Force has the incredibly important job of trying to make sure Canadians get the best preventive health care possible and avoid strategies that don't help them or that harm them. I'm more than proud to be a member. "
"When balanced against harms, preventive health care can help people live healthier lives. As a Task Force member, I am honoured to support patients and primary care providers when navigating the pros and cons of preventive health care options."
"The Canadian Task Force on Preventive Health Care is an outstanding research machine that helps clinicians, their patients and health care managers to gain more insight into the complex reality of prevention. Building upon rich and diversified competencies, it delivers an independent, balanced and rigorous message, allowing to make wise decisions in preventive care."
"For those looking for recommendations on prevention and screening, the Canadian Task Force website offers not just statements but also tools to help you put them into practice with your patients."
"Just like family physicians, the Task Force takes a generalist's view of health promotion and disease prevention. Rather than focusing on a specific condition, the Task Force has a broad mandate to make credible recommendations aimed at improving the health of Canadians."
