Adapting a Community Health Worker Program to Facilitate Lung Cancer Screening among Chinese Taxi Drivers


Full Title

Informing the Adaptation of a CHW Model to Facilitate Lung Cancer Screening for Chinese Taxi Drivers


In this study, researchers want to adapt a community health worker program to facilitate the use of lung cancer screening by Chinese taxi and car service drivers who smoke or who used to smoke. The study team will interview drivers, taxi garage staff and management, and healthcare providers and administrators to gain insight into what this program should be like to be most beneficial for drivers. The interviews will include questions about smoking, lung cancer risk, lung cancer screening, community health workers, and healthcare access.


Participants in this study will include Mandarin-speaking taxi and car service drivers (ages 50-80) who smoke or who quit smoking in the last 15 years. Garage staff and managers (ages 21 and older) who are Mandarin-speaking will also participate in the interviews. Healthcare providers and administrators will also be interviewed.
