CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of lung cancer.

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this CNE (NCPD) activity will assist oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists with the formulation of state-of-the-art clinical management strategies to facilitate optimal care of patients with breast cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES
    • Appreciate the benefits, risks and long-term outcomes associated with current local and/or systemic treatment modalities in the management of resectable or unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and consider this information when counseling patients.
    • Review the FDA approval of anti-PD-L1 antibody consolidation therapy for patients with unresectable Stage III NSCLC who have not experienced disease progression after standard platinum-based chemotherapy concurrent with radiation therapy, and discern how this strategy can be appropriately and safely integrated into routine clinical practice.
    • Develop an understanding of which clinical and biologic factors (eg, chemoradiation therapy-related toxicities, PD-L1 status, EGFR/ALK status) potentially affect the decision to use anti-PD-L1 antibody consolidation for unresectable Stage III NSCLC, and apply this information to better counsel patients about current therapeutic recommendations.
    • Recognize immune-related adverse events and other common side effects of anti-PD-L1 antibody consolidation therapy in patients with Stage III NSCLC, and offer supportive strategies to minimize and manage these toxicities.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies for localized or locally advanced NSCLC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
    • Identify opportunities to enhance the collaborative role of oncology nurses in the comprehensive biopsychosocial care of patients with locally advanced NSCLC to optimize clinical and quality-of-life outcomes.
