Missed opportunities : the case for inpatient lung cancer screening
Metadata[+] Show full item record
"Over the past twenty years, the hospitalist field has grown from an uncommon metropolitan profession to a ubiquitous, broad specialty focused on the rapidly evolving field of inpatient medicine 1. Hospitalists are no longer limited to acute medical conditions; the hospitalist in 2021 has an ever-broadening scope of practice and is increasingly seen as an expert in transitions of care, quality improvement, and high value medicine 2. Their role in public health is increasingly recognized by their work in infection control, antibiotic stewardship, addiction medicine, and smoking cessation to name a few. Hospitalists can continue their innovation and improve care by recommending and performing lung cancer screening (LCS). The coronavirus pandemic advanced the field of telehealth significantly and bundling of in-person services is the natural progression of this trend."
