UCCP21070 / Uptake / Adler

Basic Study Information

This is a randomized controlled pilot trial of a text-based behavioral intervention aimed at increasing uptake of lung cancer screening among emergency department patients. We will conduct a 2-year randomized controlled clinical trial with a prospectively collected convenience sample of 366 adults who are eligible for LCS but non-adherent with LCS screening guidelines. Adults aged 50-80 will be recruited from a high-volume urban ED and a low-volume rural ED, assigned to study conditions, and followed-up at 150 days to assess interval engagement with the University of Rochester Medical Center's LCS screening program (primary outcome). Electronic Health Record (EHR) review will be conducted to assess screening results and subsequent clinical endpoints.
