Abstract

The CHEST-Australia Trial is the first Australian trial to test the effect of a behavioural intervention to reduce the time to presentation in primary care with lung cancer symptoms. The CHEST-Australia intervention has shown to be effective in increasing respiratory consultation rates by 39% and reducing the time to consult in a targeted high-risk population, indicating this tailored one-to-one approach is effective. This trial adds weight to the limited existing research on interventions to
reduce the time before consultation and could potentially be a low-cost and safe approach to early diagnosis of lung cancer.
