Perspectives of family physicians towards access to lung cancer screening for individuals living with low income – a qualitative study

Abstract

Background

Individuals living with low income are less likely to participate in lung cancer screening (LCS) with low-dose computed tomography. Family physicians (FPs) are typically responsible for referring eligible patients to LCS; therefore, we sought to understand their perspectives on access to lung cancer screening for individuals living with low income in order to improve equity in access to LCS.

Family-centred care delivery: Comparing models of primary care service delivery in Ontario

Editor's Key Points

  • In Ontario, different models of primary care service delivery coexist. The organization and remuneration of primary care services might influence many aspects of quality of care and provider behaviour. Therefore, it is important to evaluate these models in order to better understand their performance and function.
  • This study found that patients and providers reported high levels of family-centred care in all models of primary care service delivery.
