Accurate Diagnosis and Personalized Treatment of NSCLC for the Interdisciplinary Team

The goal of this initiative is to provide guidance to the interdisciplinary NSCLC care team on how to develop practical testing protocols targeting genomic pathways for advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and how this information supports personalized treatment decisions for improved patient outcomes. It is essential that all members of the NSCLC care team understand the necessary processes and are equipped to apply current research on genomic targets to testing for mutations/drivers in appropriate advanced NSCLC patients.

Target Audience

This program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, pulmonologists, pathologists, interventional radiologists, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals involved in the care of patients with NSCLC.

Learning Objectives

Following this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Employ effective biomarker screening processes to diagnose NSCLC associated with specific mutations
  • Identify actionable oncogenic mutations associated with NSCLC and their implications for diagnosis and treatment
  • Develop effective strategies for multidisciplinary management of NSCLC

NCCN Continuing Education Disclosure Policy

It is the policy of NCCN that every 12 months, all faculty, moderators, activity planners and all internal planning staff participating in NCCN continuing education activities are expected to disclose any financial relationships with a commercial interest. In addition, all faculty presentations have been reviewed to ensure education is fair and balanced and that clinical content presented supports safe, effective patient care. Individuals who do not disclose relevant financial relationships will be disqualified from involvement in the CE activity as a content developer, planner, or presenter.


NCCN continuing education considers financial relationships to create a conflict of interest when an individual has both a financial relationship with a commercial interest and the opportunity to affect continuing education content about the products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.

NCCN continuing education considers relevant financial relationships as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest. NCCN does 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.
