Abstract:
Background: Millions of smokers and former smokers (both men and women) die from lung cancer yearly in the United States. It is estimated that there are 159, 390 deaths in the U.S (88,900 men and 70,490 women) due to lung cancer in 2009. This represents 28 percent of all cancer deaths (Retrieved from LungCancer.org on October 28, 2009). There is an estimated 15% survival rate after lung cancer diagnosis (Kirsh, et al 2001). There are many factors affecting how much health care people use, types of health care they use, and when the care is needed. Purpose: To combat this challenge a multifaceted approach to lung cancer prevention, smoking reduction, education, early detection, emerged in December 2001; when a collaborative effort between faith-based organizations, community health centers, Health Choice Network, Jessie Trice Cancer Prevention Program, Camillus Concern, Inc, International l Early Lung Action Program (I-ELCAP), the University of Miami, and Jackson Health System, a large metropolitan hospital in Miami-Dade County partnered services. This effort aimed to reduce lung cancer deaths and smoking in at risk-low-income indigent populations. The large metropolitan hospital provided 104,046 in-patient days and 427,801 outpatients visits, in 2002, to the indigent population of Miami-Dade County and saw the need to collaborate with this effort. (Barrierinhas, Jackson Memorial Hospital, 2003). Methods: The evidence-based program coordinated and evaluated its services through community screening, education, behavioral modification, and/or nicotine replacement smoking cessation programs, easy access for early detection utilizing computed tomography and treatment through the Thoracic Surgery Division at the large Metropolitan hospital. From 2001 to 2007, 614 participants were enrolled in the program with a smoking reduction rate, 54%. Findings: The program yielded a high level of collaboration through a mutual commitment between partners; integrating, maximizing and leveraging resources in the face of declining funding and budget cuts; easy access for screening and cessation counseling through outpatient services; closed gaps for under-deserved low-in minorities; established an educational process for the community to improve cancer screening and prevention; developed partnerships between cancer specialists, experts in cancer control and the physicians delivering primary care; and training community-based smoking cessation facilitators to be disseminated throughout the county for cessation education, program awareness, and tobacco disease prevention. Discussion: The major focus to reduce lung cancer in at risk low-income populations and to strive to obtain the National Health Objective of reducing smokers to 12% or less utilizing appropriate smoking cessation modalities and a successful team of physicians, RNs, social workers, pharmacists, nutritionist, clergies, and lay health care workers utilizing as multifaceted approach to cessation education and early lung cancer detection. In research, results added to the knowledge of minority smokers and smoking cessation effectiveness through evidence-based programs. Politically, support smoking bans through committees, community and hospital forums; lobby for insurance coverage and other medically based treatments.
