The Lung Cancer Screening Steering Committee and ACR staff have collaborated to create the Resumption of Screening toolkit: a dedicated resource to assist Lung Cancer screening centers with return to screening during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This toolkit includes:
- The Resumption of Screening Quick Reference Guide: A one-page document informing patients and providers about the changes made to screening procedures/sites during the pandemic.
- Telehealth Quick Reference Guide: A one-page document providing a quick reference for telehealth guidelines and resources for shared decision making.
- Template letters for both patients and referring providers informing them of updated procedures and precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These letters can be used and updated with your letter head.
- Patient Safety Infographic to show patients what they can expect when scheduling their imaging and how you will keep them safe.
