New clinical guidelines for lung cancer treatment

New clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of lung cancer have been published in an electronic "wiki" format to assist doctors and their patients to make informed treatment choices based on the most current research available.

Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Treatment of Lung Cancer, commissioned and co-funded by Cancer Australia and developed by Cancer Council Australia, revise the treatment section of the 2004 "Clinical practice guidelines for the prevention, diagnosis and management of lung cancer". The evidence base for the treatment of lung cancer has grown almost exponentially since the 2004 printed guidelines and it continues to grow with emerging research.

The guidelines are available online on Cancer Council Australia's Cancer Guidelines Wiki: http://wiki.cancer.org.au
