Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2019 Congress Series™: Lung Cancer
The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimates that 228,150 new cases of lung cancer will be diagnosed in the United States in 2019 with an estimated 142,670 estimated deaths, with smoking remaining an important risk factor. The emergence of new biomarker testing, advances in radiation techniques, and the availability of new systemic therapies has changed the treatment landscape for non-small cell lung cancer. This rapid pace of development and evolution has created challenges for clinicians to remain current with the advances in treatment options and the management of adverse events resulting from these new therapies. The NCCN 2019 Congress Series™: Lung Cancer is designed to familiarize clinicians with key updates in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®), new and emerging therapeutic options, the latest clinical research on lung cancer, and how these advances compare to the current standard of care to optimize management of patients with lung cancer and assist practitioners to incorporate new cancer treatment strategies and regimens into their practice.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional oncology care team, including physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other relevant health care professionals who manage the care of patients with lung cancer.
