The primary purpose of this paper is to identify partners and levels of engagement through investigating participants of the Kentucky Lung Cancer Screening Learning Collaborative: Achieving Equity, which was led by the Kentucky Lung Cancer Education Awareness Detection Survivorship (KY LEADSTM) Prevention and Early Detection team now known as the Quality Implementation of Lung Cancer Screening (QUILSTM) group in collaboration with the Healthy Kentucky Initiative supported by UK HealthCare. A secondary objective was to identify and categorize organizational and system policies related to lung cancer and screenings. The six-session series focused on equity in lung cancer screening implementation. Collaboration plays a key role in public health and learning collaboratives provide an opportunity to share information and receive input from those in various areas. Through examination of engagement of the learning collaborative, we can gain insight on partnership in public health, areas of focus, and how policies can be utilized to promote equity in lung cancer screening. This paper will analyze engagement with the learning collaborative and how partnerships can be involved in policies. Additional manuscripts will detail the implementation, process, and impact of the learning collaborative.
