Symptoms of lung cancer are often vague and can be overlooked, however, early and rapid investigation and referral is necessary for optimal patient outcomes. How can we give ourselves the best chance of identifying possible lung cancer in our busy primary care practice?
Join us for this GPCE keynote webinar and learn about Cancer Australia’s new resource: ‘Investigating symptoms of lung cancer: a guide for all health professionals.’ You’ll hear from a health professional who is living well with stage 4 lung cancer, as well as expert GPs and a respiratory physician, as they take you step-by-step through this important guide, in a case-based setting.
