This Evidence Check review investigated best practice in early assessment and diagnosis of lung cancer. Increasing awareness of risk factors and of the importance of early assessment and diagnosis among health professionals and the community is a key strategy. Timely treatment requires the engagement of primary care providers to drive diagnostic testing and appropriate referral that enable tumour staging and treatment. Timely access to specialist centres is critical and a tailored approach for screening high risk individuals is recommended.
