The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of learners in the use of biomarkers to select individualized treatments for patients with NSCLC.
This program is intended for medical oncologists, thoracic oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who treat and manage patients with non-small-cell lung cancer.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Assess new and emerging predictive biomarkers to guide precision treatment decisions in patients with NSCLC
- Discuss the practical aspects of biomarker testing and interpretation, including benefits/limitations of different testing methodologies/platforms/assays, racial disparities, and other nuances
- Test patients with NSCLC for all appropriate currently available biomarkers to guide treatment selection and clinical trial eligibility
- Summarize the available data and expert recommendations to determine which biomarkers should be tested in your patients with lung cancer
