A11 - LUNG CANCER SCREENING AND TOBACCO CESSATION: THE TEACHABLE MOMENT?
09:15 AM - 11:15 AM
Independence Ballroom A-D (Level M4), Marriott Marquis Washington
Smoking cessation treatment in conjunction with lung cancer screening offers the opportunity to reduce smoking related mortality. The best approach for delivering interventions in this setting is not known. The session will focus on 5 areas: (1) effect of screening on smoking cessation; (2) minimizing disparities in tobacco treatment within this context; (3) effective smoking cessation interventions specific to screening; (4) message framing to optimize cessation in this setting; (5) applying science to regulatory decision making. We will discuss clinical guidelines, highlight the evidence, address research gaps, and outline stakeholder recommendations for future research.
