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 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 lung cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Acknowledge available Phase III findings supporting the use of adjuvant osimertinib for patients with early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with EGFR mutations, and consider the potential effects of this information on current and future clinical practice.
    • Review published research data documenting the safety and efficacy of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors alone or in combination with other systemic approaches for metastatic NSCLC with an EGFR tumor mutation, and discern how this information should be applied outside of a research setting.
    • Assess the efficacy and safety of commercially available ALK inhibitors for patients with metastatic NSCLC and an ALK rearrangement, and apply this understanding to the selection and sequencing of these drugs as first- and later-line therapy.
    • Review recent therapeutic advances related to the use of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies as monotherapy or in combination with chemotherapy or chemobiologic therapy for metastatic NSCLC, and discern how these approaches can be optimally employed in the management of this disease.
    • Recognize common side effects associated with novel systemic agents in the treatment of NSCLC, and implement supportive management strategies to minimize and ameliorate these toxicities.
