8. Areas for Future Consideration
The Lung Cancer QPI Groups have not been able to identify sufficient evidence, or determine appropriate measurability specifications, to address all areas felt to be of key importance in the treatment of lung cancer, and therefore in improving the quality of care for patients affected by lung cancer.
The following areas for future consideration have been raised across the lifetime of the Lung Cancer QPIs.
- Clinical management of patients with mesothelioma.
- CT scan undertaken prior to first respiratory physician consultation.
