  • Compare current and emerging frontline treatment strategies for advanced EGFR-mutated NSCLC focusing on safety, efficacy, and the individualization of therapy based on tumor-specific and patient-specific factors
  • Compare evidence of efficacy in delaying or reducing brain metastases for the different EGFR TKIs
  • Evaluate current and evolving treatment approaches to address acquired resistance and progression in advanced EGFR-mutated NSCLC
  • Discuss the roles of oncology and managed care pharmacists in optimizing the use of targeted therapy in advanced EGFR-mutated NSCLC, managing therapy-related toxicities, improving adherence, educating patients, and aiding in the implementation of clinical pathways to deliver quality care
