Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve participants’ knowledge of, confidence in, and competence in integrating immune checkpoint inhibitor combinations into the initial treatment of patients with extensive-stage SCLC and advanced NSCLC.

Target Audience 
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare providers who care for patients with lung cancer.

Learning Objectives 

  • Describe the role of combination approaches to optimize checkpoint inhibitor efficacy and reduce treatment resistance in patients with lung cancer
  • Plan treatment strategies for patients with extensive-stage SCLC that include immune checkpoint inhibitor combinations
  • Plan first-line treatment strategies for patients with advanced NSCLC that include immune checkpoint inhibitor combinations
  • Evaluate the available clinical data on biomarkers of response to immune checkpoint inhibitor combinations in lung cancer
  • Manage immune-related adverse events in patients with advanced NSCLC receiving checkpoint inhibitor therapy
  • Incorporate investigational checkpoint inhibitors and clinical trial participation as part of clinical care strategies for NSCLC and SCLC
