NCCN Guidelines for Patients
: Lung Cancer Screening
Version 1.2014
NCCN aims to improve the care given to patients with cancer.
NCCN staff work with experts to create helpful programs and
resources for many stakeholders. Stakeholders include health
providers, patients, businesses, and others. One resource is
the series of booklets for patients called the NCCN Patient
Guidelines. Each booklet presents the standard of care for a
type of cancer.
NCCN abbreviations and acronyms
National Comprehensive Cancer Network
NCCN Patient Guidelines
NCCN Guidelines for Patients

NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology
The patient booklets are based on guidelines written for
doctors. These guidelines are called the NCCN Guidelines.
They give a step-by-step course of care that many cancer
doctors follow. Panels of experts create the NCCN Guidelines.
Most of the experts are from the 23 NCCN Member
Institutions. Panelists may include surgeons, radiation
oncologists, medical oncologists, and patient advocates.
Recommendations in the NCCN Guidelines are based on
clinical trials and the experience of the panelists.
The people involved in the making of the guidelines
for patients and doctors are listed next, starting with
