PURPOSE: Prior studies have identified delays in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) treatment associated with stage, while other studies have identified demographic factors associated with outright non-compliance with recommended care, such as surgical resection for early-stage disease. These studies, however, have had limitations due to their retrospective nature. Our aim was to examine compliance with American College of Chest Physicians’ guideline-recommended, stage-specific care in NSCLC and to identify factors associated with receiving recommended care as part of the National Lung Screening Trial (NLST).
