Recorded Presentation from the NCCN 2016 Congress Webinar Series: Lung Cancer - Immunotherapy in Patients with Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
This series is designed to educate healthcare professionals on current and emerging scientific data so that they can make evidence-based decisions about screening and treatment for patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). The goal of this series is to ensure that members of a multidisciplinary team, including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other relevant healthcare professionals, have the knowledge and skills necessary to apply the standards of care to their practices and healthcare settings for patients with NSCLC.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who manage patients with non-small cell lung cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe recent updates regarding the use of immunotherapy as subsequent therapy for patients with metastatic NSCLC.
- Implement the use of biomarkers to identify patients with metastatic NSCLC who may be candidates for immunotherapy.
- Identify the unique side effects that may occur with immunotherapy and describe how to manage the side effects in patients with non-small cell lung cancer.

The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines “conflict of interest” as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.
ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.
All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation to the tasks and methods of delivery.
