WCLC 2023 | Centralized shared decision-making for lung cancer screening

David Yankelevitz, MD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY, discusses patient and clinician perspectives on centralized shared decision-making for lung cancer screening. Centralized shared decision-making involves the referral of a patient to a nurse practitioner at the screening site where the programme will be explained and both parties are involved in making the decision, as opposed to the process being carried out by the patient’s clinician. Interviews were conducted with referring clinicians and patients who had experienced this concept. The study revealed that patients felt that the decision was already made through the referral. Prof. Yankelevitz comments that centralized shared decision-making defeats the principle of the shared process. This interview took place at the 2023 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) in Singapore, Singapore.
