Lung CNS follow-up
Category: Follow-Up and End-of-Life Care
The Yorkshire Cancer Network (YCN) Lung Cancer Nurse Forum wrote a protocol for follow-up of lung cancer patients for implementation within the network. In Leeds this was first implemented in 2006.
We informed the medical teams that telephone follow-up by the LCNS team was possible utilising theYCN protocol. We set up a template on the patient administration system to ensure activity was being formally recorded and set up a prospective audit database.
The follow up protocol is now well established as part of follow up practice for selected patients.
