CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Appreciate the benefits and risks of and practical considerations for current local and systemic treatment modalities in the management of unresectable locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and consider this information when counseling patients regarding personalized therapeutic recommendations.
    • Appraise available findings from both clinical research studies and real-world analyses documenting long-term outcomes with 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 develop practical strategies to optimally integrate this approach into clinical care.
    • Recognize immune-related adverse events and other common side effects associated with anti-PD-L1 antibody consolidation therapy for patients with Stage III NSCLC, and offer supportive strategies to minimize and manage these toxicities.
    • Evaluate the benefits and risks of and practical considerations for chemoradiation therapy (CRT) in the management of unresectable locally advanced NSCLC, and consider this information when counseling patients regarding personalized therapeutic recommendations.
    • Understand the spectrum, severity and median time to onset of CRT-related adverse events, and recognize the potential impact of these toxicities on successful initiation and completion of subsequent anti-PD-L1 antibody consolidation therapy.
    • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel therapeutic approaches and strategies for locally advanced NSCLC, and counsel appropriate patients about availability and participation.
