Original Title: Algorithmes d’investigation, de traitement et de suivi: cancer du poumon
Authors' recommendations: This innovative tool, includes lung cancer investigation, treatment and follow-up algorithms that reflect both the best available evidence and clinical practice in Québec (expert consensus). Nearly 50 Québec oncology experts specializing in the investigation and treatment of lung cancer took part in a meeting for the purpose of answering more than 140 questions concerning specific topics. A review of the scientific literature was then carried out for each question. The algorithms were written by the CEPO's methodologists using the answers to the questions and literature data. The document was validated and revised by the Consensus Day Organizing Committee, the group of experts who were present, and the CEPO.
