TARGET FOR NSCLC: The Advancing Research into Genomic Pathways and use of EGFR Therapies
The goal of this initiative is to increase clinicians’ knowledge and improve their competence in understanding the latest advances in targeting genomic pathways for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) through a review of the current and ongoing research/clinical trials focused on new and emerging EGFR-based therapies.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment and management of patients with NSCLC.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Review the importance of testing for genetic mutations to assist in treatment decision-making
- Discuss updated recommendations for use of drugs targeting EGFR+ mutations and evaluate potential applications of emerging therapies targeting EGFR+ mutations
- Describe mechanisms of resistance in treatment of EGFR+ NSCLC and develop strategies to overcome resistance to EGFR+ therapies
NCCN Medical Education Disclosure Policy
It is the policy of NCCN that all planners, faculty, moderators, authors, reviewers and anyone involved in the planning and delivery of NCCN continuing education activities are expected to disclose ALL financial relationships they have had in the past 24 months with ineligible companies. The ACCME Standards for Integrity and Independence require that individuals who refuse to provide this information will be disqualified from involvement in the planning and implementation of accredited continuing education presented by NCCN.

Content, including any presentation of therapeutic options, is fair, balanced, evidence-based, scientifically accurate, and free of commercial bias and marketing.
Ineligible Company: An ineligible company is any entity whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.
Relevant Financial Relationships: Financial relationships of any dollar amount occurring within the past 24 months are defined as relevant if the educational content an individual can control is related to the business lines or products of an ineligible company. There is no minimum financial threshold. We ask for disclosure of ALL financial relationships with ineligible companies, regardless of the amount and regardless of the potential relevance of each relationship to the education.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation for the tasks and methods of delivery.
Faculty presentations may include discussion of off-label use. Faculty will disclose that the use in question is not currently approved by the FDA per the product labeling or marketing.
Full disclosure of faculty relationships will be made prior to the activity.
In support of improving patient care, National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
