Archived Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Novel Targeted Therapies and Immunotherapies for Metastatic Non-small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
Targeted therapies and immunotherapies improve outcomes and quality of life for patients with metastatic NSCLC who have specific biomarkers. With the rapid pace of the new FDA approvals and subsequent revisions in the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®) Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer, it has become challenging to stay current with the new NCCN recommendations for sequencing therapy with targeted agents and immunotherapies. Clinicians need to be aware of the most current recommendations for managing patients with metastatic NSCLC so they can provide the most appropriate care.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who manage patients with cancer.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Describe the different types of biomarker testing used to determine whether patients with metastatic NSCLC are candidates for targeted therapy or immunotherapy.
- Select the most appropriate first-line therapy option for patients with metastatic NSCLC who have specific biomarkers.
- Discuss subsequent therapy options for patients with metastatic NSCLC who have biomarkers and have progressed on first-line therapy.

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.
