Did you know? According to the World Health Organization, there was an estimated 1.8 million deaths due to lung cancer in 2018 together with 2.1 million newly diagnosed cases in the same year. In fact, Lung Cancer is responsible for the greatest number of cancer deaths worldwide and is a major public health concern. This highlights the importance of emphasizing Lung Cancer Awareness every single day.
Some of the challenges that prevent long term survival include:
- Difficulty in early diagnosis
- Lack of treatment accessibility
- Poor screening methods
- Few treatment advances
- Cancer care differences within and between countries
Informing and educating HCPs about early diagnosis and screening methods, treatment advances and new treatment guidelines may help us deal with some of these challenges and work towards better solutions. Using interactive patient cases with the MedUniverse HCP engagement platform is a great way to send these important medical messages to your HCPs. Moreover, they can also be pivotal in understanding treatment disparities, which is one of the major challenges in Lung Cancer patient care.
