The purpose of this capstone project is to evaluate provider knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors around lung cancer screening in Maine. To evaluate these elements, a survey will be developed and administered to primary care physicians in Maine through three physician specialty societies. The survey will be developed keeping existing literature and previous studies of a similar nature in mind. This survey is being developed in collaboration with the Center for Outcomes Research and Evaluation (CORE), a branch of Maine Medical Center Research Institute. The Evidence- Based Public Health Framework will be used to outline and ground this capstone project.
