Invitation methods for Indigenous New Zealand Māori in lung cancer screening
This study is a world-first, Indigenous-led lung cancer screening trial looking to optimise screening uptake for Aotearoa New Zealand Indigenous Māori. Lung cancer screening is effective at reducing mortality but there is little evidence regarding its application in Māori. Invitations for screening from the patient’s primary care physician will be compared with invitations sent from a centralised screening service. Final data collation is predicted to be completed mid-2024. The results of this study will answer equity-focused questions on key policy-relevant lung cancer screening program parameters and inform equitable program development in New Zealand.
