Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in immuno-oncology for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer.

Target Audience 
This educational program is intended for medical oncologists and other healthcare providers who treat patients with non-small-cell lung cancer.

Learning Objectives

  • Select optimal first-line immune checkpoint inhibitor and chemotherapy combinations for patients with advanced or metastatic NSCLC
  • Evaluate the available clinical data on biomarkers of response to immune checkpoint inhibitor–based therapy in NSCLC
  • Identify patients most likely to benefit from immunotherapy for unresectable stage III NSCLC following chemoradiation therapy and in those who are ineligible for surgery or chemoradiation therapy
  • Delineate the current biomarker testing recommendations for patients with stage III and IV NSCLC
  • Incorporate investigational checkpoint inhibitors and clinical trial participation as part of clinical care strategies for NSCLC
  • Appropriately mitigate and manage immune-related adverse events in patients receiving immune checkpoint inhibitors for the treatment of NSCLC
