Lung cancer screening: Patient Advisory Group
This project will establish a PAG (patient advisory group) group to help lead a study investigating the uptake and cost-effectiveness of lung cancer screening.
Cancer screening programmes often experience low participation rates from certain groups of people, including those from minority ethnic groups and those living in deprived areas. This project will look at how uptake of screening can be encouraged from all eligible members of the target population.
The PAG will contribute to the design of a screening programme and co-produce documents to be used as part of the project, for example participant information sheets, surveys, and plain language summaries.
It is being carried out by researchers based at The University of Manchester’s Centre for Health Economics, as part of an NIHR doctoral fellowship award.
