Managing Metastatic NSCLC: Strategies for Treatment Selection
This activity contains:
- CME/CPE/CNE-Certified Live Grand Rounds and Webinars
- Downloadable Slide Deck (a non-certified educational resource)
- Pocket Reference Guide (a non-certified educational resource)
The goal of this activity is to educate clinicians about recent developments in the treatment of metastatic non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and to provide them with the information necessary to make best use of the available therapies.
The treatment of NSCLC has changed significantly as a result of the identification of clinically relevant biomarkers and the development of targeted therapies. Although patient outcomes have improved as a result of treatment advances, metastatic disease is still an important challenge. Knowledge and practice gaps can be seen in several aspects of the treatment of metastatic NSCLC, such as how to integrate new therapies into practice, manage toxicities associated with new therapies, and make best use of a shared decision-making approach to treatment.
This Grand Rounds initiative is designed to close these knowledge gaps and provide clinicians with up-to-date information about therapies for NSCLC so that they can make informed choices regarding management and patient education. Topics covered in this activity include the indications, efficacy, and safety of recently approved therapies; how to integrate these therapies into practice; and how to apply a shared decision-making approach when working with patients who have metastatic NSCLC.
This activity is intended for community oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who manage NSCLC.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Summarize the indications, efficacy, and safety profiles of recently approved therapies for NSCLC
- Devise treatment selection and drug sequencing strategies that incorporate newer therapies for patients with metastatic NSCLC
- Implement management plans for the potential toxicities associated with therapies used for NSCLC
- Summarize the key components of patient education and shared decision making in the treatment of NSCLC
- Activity Overview
- The Foundation of Targeted Therapies for NSCLC
- Treatment Strategies for Metastatic NSCLC
- Case-Based Discussion of Treatment Selection and Shared Decision Making
