The goal of this educational curriculum is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to plan individualized treatment for patients with EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC.
This program is intended for oncologists, nurses, and other providers who care for patients with NSCLC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Implement best practices and guideline-endorsed molecular testing algorithms in NSCLC, including the use of tissue-based and blood-based biomarker testing for evaluation of EGFR mutation status in newly diagnosed patients and those with acquired resistance following EGFR TKI therapy
- Compare available efficacy and safety data of systemic EGFR targeted therapies throughout the continuum of EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC from the first-line setting to the second-line setting and beyond (including outcomes by type of EGFR mutation)
- Plan sequential therapy based on an understanding of the mechanisms of resistance following EGFR TKI treatment, including the incidence of T790M and amplification of MET
- Identify patients eligible to enroll on important ongoing clinical trials evaluating promising investigational agents and combinations for EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC
