LUNG CANCER has become one of the great challenges facing medicine today.

It is responsible for more deaths per year than breast, prostate or colon cancer.

Despite successful QUIT campaigns, 20% of Australians still smoke. Of those who gave up years ago, a proportion will still go on to develop lung cancer.

NON-SMOKERS increasingly figure in our referral population. These patients commonly have adenocarcinoma with bronchiolo-alveolar features and are often women.

SURVIVAL and QUALITY OF LIFE must be maximized by knowledge of and adherence to evidence-based treatments. This is much more likely in a multi-disciplinary team approach.

RESEARCH is the key to improving the unacceptable mortality that results even with the best treatment. We have projects related to DNA and gene expression profiles of resected cancers, as well as access to clinical research into new surgical, radiation and chemotherapy techniques.

AUDIT of process and outcome is integral
to our approach to lung cancer and its multidisciplinary care as co-ordinated by our group.
