Recorded Presentations from the NCCN 2012 Congress Webinar Series: Lung Cancers™: Palliative Care in Lung Cancer
This archived educational webinar series is designed to provide an in-depth analysis of the evidence and clinical decision-making that led to the development of the NCCN Guidelines® for Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer and Small Cell Lung Cancer. Participants will learn how to implement the NCCN Guidelines recommendations into their practice and gain a clear understanding of the most up-to-date treatment recommendations for these cancers. As research continues in these areas and new information emerges, it is critical that clinicians are kept up-to-date and informed. This series will communicate the NCCN Guidelines in a direct and interactive way to community oncologists and other clinical professionals.
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, pathologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with lung cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Summarize the most common and severe symptoms of lung cancer and its treatment that often require palliative care
- Explain some of the palliative therapies for the most common and severe lung cancer symptoms, such as dyspnea, airway obstruction, and hemoptysis
