Optimizing Tobacco Treatment for Smokers Seeking Lung Cancer Screening
Funded by: National Cancer Institute
Project dates: August 2016 - November 2022
Principal Investigator: Shelley, Donna
Principal Investigator: Ostroff JS
PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project will develop and refine an optimized tobacco treatment intervention, tailored specifically for implementation within the context of lung cancer screening. The multi-level (patient- and site-) mixed- methods, evaluation plan and partnership with a heterogeneous mix of lung cancer screening sites will also provide critical data about scalable implementation parameters. It will accelerate scientific discovery and dissemination of cost-effective strategies for integrating tobacco treatment into lung cancer screening settings thereby reducing tobacco-related cancer morbidity and mortality.
