Original Title: Evaluación del programa de cribado de cáncer de pulmón
Authors' objectives: The main objective was to assess the comparative efficacy, safety and efficiency, and to analyse the ethical, social, and organisational aspects, as well as the possible environmental impact and research needs of screening in populations at high risk of developing LC. To this end, 8 research questions were established. The degree of compliance with the essential requirements for implementing a population screening programme in the NHS was also assessed. The target population consisted of adults, without LC at the time of diagnosis (confirmed or suspected), smokers or ex-smokers or with other risk factors (occupational or environmental exposure to carcinogens such as radon, asbestos or fine particles, COPD, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis or with a family history of lung cancer).
