ABSTRACT
The article presents a study to identify areas for improving management of patient with lung cancer which remains the greatest cause of death in Australia. It reviews a retrospective survey of all cases of lung cancer reported to the Victorian Cancer Registry from January 1 to June 30, 2003 and followed up for five years. Results of the study suggest that the greater use of postsurgical adjuvant chemotherapy is one of the opportunities to improve patient management.
