Survey – Support the Lung Cancer Action Plan for Canada



Commitment: Short-term

Connection method: Virtual

Open to National Region


Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in Canada. In recent years, deaths due to lung cancer have been decreasing. We want to build on this momentum by making sure we are preventing and treating lung cancer in a timely and equitable way so that more people can have a good quality of life. With this goal in mind, CCS is working in collaboration with experts from across Canada, including patient-based organizations and people with living experience, to create a national Lung Cancer Action Plan.

This survey will help us identify priorities to be included in the Lung Cancer Action Plan by collecting the perspectives of many different people who have experience with lung cancer and live in Canada. Answers to this survey are welcome from people who have been diagnosed with lung cancer, including survivors; people who are caring or cared for someone with lung cancer; and professionals researching, treating or making policy decisions related to lung cancer care. We are seeking perspectives from people with a variety of living experiences based on who they are, where they live and how they access care.

We are seeking your support in sharing this survey with your network so that we can gather diverse perspectives on potential priorities for the National Lung Cancer Action Plan. To support dissemination, we have provided an outreach email attached.

All responses are voluntary and are being collected in a way that cannot identify the participant. The survey should take 15 min.

If you have any questions or need support, we are collaborating with Shift Health, a health and life sciences consulting firm, to conduct this survey. You can contact them at

I was thrilled to discover the Patient Voices Network, where the array of places to be the voice of a patient is vast and incredibly interesting. Besides my ongoing “gig” with the BC Emergency Medicine Network, I have enjoyed being involved in several one-off initiatives. I love working with professionals who genuinely value the perspectives of their patient partners.
