@Jennifer--programs just announced--not sure about the procedures yet. Someone else may know much more.
Jennifer Knight

In our cancer survivor patient population at Markey, 23% of adults who walk through the door reported cigarette smoking or other tobacco use in the month prior to their visit.

Telehealth and internet availability do not translate into access. My wife was told recently she didn't qualify for a telehealth visit.
Jennifer Knight
46:40
So this aligns pretty well with the BRFSS data, @Jessica.
Jennifer Knight
47:24
Yes, great point, Jeff. Telehealth implementation post-COVID is an important consideration. @Angela Criswell, perhaps you can include as part of insurance conversation if we have time!
Colleen.Toftness
47:51
Jeff Russell, what reason was your wife given for not qualifying for telehealth? Curious.
Angela Criswell
49:02
Yes, we can include discussion about telehealth, if there is time today.

Todd Burus

Jeff, Yes, that is an important point that a lot of people miss. We actually have more detailed data that addresses this disconnect, but it's tricky to read and explain so we don't typically include it in these big group conversations. Two resources that are great at exploring this are a set of tools available at https://pcrd.purdue.edu/data-analysis/tools/ and a new modeling approach discussed at https://www.williamrinehart.com/2022/broadband-mapping-machine-learning/

I also need to add that Allison Adams with Foundation for a Healthy KY played a big role advocating for funding this year as well. We will keep trying!

@KyleHolyman HB77 says the EPA SIRG funds will be controlled by the board, made up mostly of industry folks, administered by PPC. How will this impact the radon program at KDPH?

@KyleHoylman Of the 7-member board, only one person is a health person. Do you know who that will be?
Ellen Hahn
01:28:01
How will the health messaging for radon be ensured in the PPC as that is not what they do?
Ashley Shemwell Owensboro Health Nurse Navigator
01:30:03
the radon report card is very interesting
Jennifer Knight
01:30:48
The disability data is still REALLY striking to me.
Sarojini Kanotra

Always appreciate use of KyBRFS data
Jeff Russell KY Cancer Program- Cumberland Valley
01:32:52
Disability data is concerning.
Kyle Hoylman
01:33:02
KCC is responsible for recommending 3 persons to Governor Beshear to serve in this seat, Ellen.
Jennifer Knight
01:34:21
When we started the KCC Lung Cancer Network (late 2013), KCP Road tours and KY LEADS Collaborative work - lots of working together is making an impact!
Jamie L. Studts
01:34:32
….but the national national decline is only 4%, and Kentucky is ~10%
Jennifer Knight
01:34:57
Woohooo, Jamie! Excellent clarifying point!
Jennifer Knight
01:35:09
We have A LOT Of screening capacity in Kentucky!
Jamie L. Studts
01:35:41
Given the decades-long rate of 80% plus, this is Kentucky transforming our lung cancer burden, which will translate into incredible reductions in lung cancer mortality.
Ellen Hahn
01:35:50
@KyleHoylman I sent an email to set up a time to talk with you about keeping the public health focus of our state radon program. Moving the mitigation certification to PPC seems like a great idea. Building our public health focus on primary and secondary prevention related to radon is crucial!
Tim Mullett
01:38:05
We have a new Operative Standard established for lung cancer that will lead to improvement in surgical quality in early stage lung cancer.
Jamie L. Studts
01:38:35
Now we must focus more on EQUITABLE and QUALITY lung cancer screening
Jennifer Knight
01:38:48
On Radon policy, there is definitely an opportunity to work together toward ensuring the best implementation possible of the new policy.
Jennifer Knight
01:40:07
Great news, Tim!
Jennifer Knight
01:40:23
Yes, Jamie - equity and quality are both essential!

We're on the same page, Ellen. Our focus on public protection remains the top priority. I'll look forward to catching up with you soon!
Jamie L. Studts
01:41:06
@Angela--thanks for acknowledging the great catch on her person-first language! Kudos
Shannon Baker
01:42:00
yes!!
Jamie L. Studts
01:42:46
Lung-RADS was a great save, but the loss of the registry is a major loss and threat to quality implementation.
Jennifer Knight
01:44:17
Always unintended consequences…
Jennifer Knight
01:45:46
They say what they have already said…!
Jennifer Knight
01:46:56
Keep them at the top of the list! Wow…
Jamie L. Studts
01:48:29
This is really cool @Angela, I can't wait to see the 2022 word cloud
Jennifer Knight
01:49:34

Jamie L. Studts
01:49:51
Devastating lack of attention to ADHERENCE as the VITAL pathway toward benefitting from LDCT
Jamie L. Studts
01:52:39
Disgusting
Jamie L. Studts
01:53:27
Absolutely disgusting--virtually guaranteeing low quality LDCT that lacks centralization, which has been consistently shown to achieve quality
Shannon Baker
01:55:05
glad to help!
Ellen Hahn
01:55:06
So many battles to fight from all fronts. Let's keep up the good work and partner together.
Angela Criswell
01:55:36
To follow up on Jamie's comment--comprehensive lung cancer screening programs help drive higher adherence rates (though adherence levels nationwide remain concerningly low). Here's why this matters--CISNET modeling shows that the mortality benefit of lung cancer screening declines by half when adherence levels fall below 50%.
Nancy Alvey
01:56:07
This is a sad time for LC patients like myself and more importantly, present patients.
Jamie L. Studts
01:56:32
...and even 50% adherence is aspirational--the national data show an annual adherence of 22%.
Shannon Baker
01:56:47
just want to highlight the most important and exciting tobacco control action at the federal level in recent history! fda has announced proposals to remove menthol flavored cigarettes and flavored cigars from the market. if you're able, please join and share the advocacy effort in support!! https://action.lung.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=8538
Jennifer Knight

Jennifer Knight

Thank you, Ellen!
Jennifer Knight
01:59:16
Just what we are working on today!
Jennifer Knight
02:00:48
Long before 2009 we were still at 81%
Angela Criswell
02:01:26
Among our Screening Centers of Excellence who completed our annual data survey last year, one in five of them indicated their annual adherence rate was at or above 75%, and half indicated an adherence rate above 50%, but there are still many struggling--13% said they don't even measure this data point. We are aiming to change that.
Sandra Anez Powell
02:03:40
Not surprise!!
Sandra Anez Powell
02:04:04
I am glad we are changing that!! YEA!!!
Elaine Russell
02:04:29
Wow! Look at the partnerships!
Jamie L. Studts
02:05:12
@Angela, I appreciate the value of that data, but we have to qualify that a bit--those are self-reported by sites that don't appreciate the differences between different components of adherence, and they are a very selected sample of sites that have sought Center of Excellence certification.
Angela Criswell
02:08:41
@Jamie, I agree...there isn't uniformity in how adherence is measured, what timeframe counts as "adherent." To attempt to be more precise, we did ask them separately about adherence to annual repeat screening (which is the data I mentioned) and adherence to interval follow-up. This data definitely represents a niche of programs committed to best practices in screening implementation, and the fact that there are struggles within these programs so publicly committed to high quality screening shows that this is an issue that has deep and wide implications.
Jamie L. Studts
02:11:23
@Angela, I think it does help highlight that individual and population health benefits from lung cancer screening have the twin challenge/opportunity--uptake and adherence, and any efforts that focus on one at the exclusion of the other is likely to be quite suboptimal.
Jennifer Knight
02:12:52
And the KHC has the attention of Hospital/Health System CEOs which is incredible. Leadership interest makes a huge difference in support and implementation of high quality lung cancer screening!
Jamie L. Studts
02:14:27
While there will continue to be folks who see SDM as a barrier to LDCT, those people do not appreciate that the value of SDM is for ADHERENCE and helping participants understand that they are unlikely to benefit from lung cancer screening by participating once, but are much more likely to benefit if they participate in the full lung cancer screening process.
Nancy Alvey
02:16:22
Thank you all for your tireless work to bring Lung Cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment and hopefully cure to the forefront and make such an impact on this disease.
Jennifer Knight
02:16:22
Great discussion in the chat - we have lots of important things to dig into further - adherence! quality! equity! continued collaboration!
Jamie L. Studts
02:16:37
How can KCC Lung Cancer Network help support the utility of this new entity

Ellen Hahn
02:21:33
@ElizabethGoode will any of the lung cancer funding be allocated to tobacco control prevention and treatment?
Kristy Young
02:23:03
Thanks to all! I have a noon call. Great work on this legislation!
Judy Kasey-Houlette

Great session - thanks to all!
Ellen Hahn
02:23:30
Thank you, KCC. I appreciate the opportunity to hear from everyone.
Jamie L. Studts
02:23:37
@Ellen, those funds should absolutely be used to support the integration of primary risk reduction into lung cancer screening programs, including smoking, second-hand smoke, and radon...
Angela Combs
02:23:39
Great information and updates that are important to our District work. Thank you all for the great work you do!
