Lung cancer is the most common cancer worldwide and is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in the United Kingdom (UK) (Matakidou et al., 2005). The disease is associated with distress and a loss of functional independence, thus having a considerable impact on quality of life (QOL). As such, the support of individuals with lung cancer constitutes a major challenge for allied health professionals (AHPs). It is therefore essential that AHPs working in cancer care have a sound understanding of lung cancer and its associated conditions, and are confident when working with this patient group in order to help them manage their disease experience.
