Expert Forum: Aotearoa Lung Cancer Screening Symposium

In this review:

Welcome to this review of the Aotearoa Lung Cancer Screening Symposium, which was organised by the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) and held in Auckland on 30 April 2021. The symposium was well attended by clinicians representing Māori health, respiratory medicine, oncology, radiology, and public health, which reflects the multidisciplinary nature of LC care. The symposium marked an important step forward for LC screening in Aotearoa as it brought together for the first time, Māori health leaders, clinicians and researchers in LC screening and representatives of Ministry of Health (Te Aho o Te Kahu/Cancer Control Agency and National Screening Unit) for an opportunity to discuss ways to establish LC screening in Aotearoa with an equity lens. This review presents highlights from the presentations.
