CE Information and Faculty Disclosures

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of lung cancer.


    • Formulate up-to-date management strategies for patients with small cell lung cancer (SCLC), considering the roles of local therapy, chemotherapy and immunotherapy.
    • Review long-term data supporting the use of atezolizumab or durvalumab in combination with platinum-based chemotherapy as first-line therapy for patients with extensive-stage SCLC, and consider how these regimens can be appropriately and safely integrated into clinical practice.
    • Consider the FDA approval of and available clinical trial findings with lurbinectedin for patients with SCLC who experience disease progression on or after platinum-containing therapy, and determine how to integrate this agent optimally into treatment algorithms.
    • Compare and contrast the side effects associated with recently approved agents and strategies in the treatment of SCLC, and formulate supportive management strategies to minimize and manage these toxicities.
    • Recall the mechanism of action and recent FDA approval of the novel reversible CDK4/6 inhibitor trilaciclib, and consider the use of this agent to reduce chemotherapy-induced bone marrow suppression in patients with extensive-stage SCLC.
    • Assess ongoing clinical research evaluating novel agents and treatment strategies under development for the management of SCLC, and counsel patients regarding the potential benefits of trial participation.
