CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of lung cancer.

    Lung cancer is a devastating disease with broad-reaching impact on public health as it accounts for approximately 13% of all new cancer cases in the United States and the most cancer-related deaths among both men and women. Despite many advances over the past few decades related to surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy, death rates attributable to lung cancer are relatively unchanged. Today, however, optimism is renewed as recent research advances have led to an explosion in genetic and biologic knowledge regarding lung cancer medicine among scientists and clinicians. Major clinical trials have witnessed a host of promising successes in the past several years, many of which are already being applied in clinical practice. Even so, these achievements will doubtless continue to be dissected and will further challenge the collective understanding of the biology and the optimal management of this disease.

    To bridge the gap between research and patient care, this issue of Lung Cancer Update uses a one-on-one interview with a leading lung cancer investigator to distill the latest research developments so they may be incorporated into clinical practice as appropriate. By providing access to cutting-edge data and expert perspectives, this CME program assists medical oncologists in the formulation of up-to-date clinical management strategies.


    • Recognize how age, performance status and other biologic and disease-related factors impact the selection of therapy for patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and targetable genetic alterations.
    • Consider published safety and efficacy data with available and emerging therapeutic strategies, and appropriately incorporate targeted therapies into the care of patients with NSCLC and identified tumor driver mutations or alterations.
    • Formulate management strategies for patients with metastatic NSCLC and an ALK rearrangement, considering the most recent research and FDA approvals of ALK inhibitors.
    • Implement a plan of care to prevent, recognize and manage side effects associated with recently approved and investigational targeted therapies for metastatic NSCLC to support quality of life and continuation of therapy.
    • Recall research data documenting the efficacy of approved and investigational immune checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of advanced NSCLC with targetable alterations to determine the current and/or potential utility of each in clinical practice.

    Research To Practice is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
