Edit this workspace

This workspace is designed for use by NCI-AACR Cancer Patient Tobacco Use Assessment Task Force, a task force organized by the National Cancer Institute and the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR). The focus of the task force is the assessment of individual tobacco use in cancer-related settings, whether during screening, diagnosis, treatment, or survivorship. The task force discussed challenges to effective tobacco use assessment and develop recommendations for moving the community forward in this important area.  The task force formed recommendations for the following areas:

  • Measures of tobacco use by cancer patients
  • Timing of assessment
  • Breadth of assessment and prioritization across cancer populations and settings, and types of therapy
  • Implementation in clinical trials and/or clinical practice settings
  • Highest priority research questions
