Resources to Improve the Care of Patients With NSCLC and EGFR Mutations (NASP)

Interact with an expert during a 1-hour live meeting examining current best practices and the latest advances in the management of EGFR-mutated NSCLC in the context of a series of patient cases. Register today!

Agenda

    • Implications on therapy choice of most recent phase III trial data and use of adjuvant EGFR TKI therapy for early-stage disease
    • Examining first-line EGFR TKI–based combination therapy
    • Considerations for special patient populations
  • Acquired Resistance Following Prior EGFR TKI Therapy
    • Mechanisms of resistance to available EGFR TKIs
  • Considerations for Specialty Pharmacy

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of learners to optimally integrate current data needed to make treatment decisions and improve outcomes in the EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC patient population.

Target Audience
This program is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Implement best practices and guideline-endorsed molecular testing algorithms in NSCLC 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 therapies throughout the continuum of EGFR mutation–positive metastatic or locally advanced NSCLC from the first-line setting to the second-line setting and beyond (including outcomes by type of EGFR mutation and the presence of co-mutations)
  • Describe the biologic rationale for the design of clinical trials combining EGFR-targeted and VEGFR-targeted therapy in EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC and potential ramifications for practice based on recent clinical trial results
  • Plan therapy based on an understanding of the subtype of EGFR mutation as well as co-mutations such as TP53
  • Refine EGFR mutation–positive metastatic and locally advanced NSCLC treatment algorithms based on molecular profile and prior therapy exposure in earlier lines of therapy
  • Identify patients eligible to enroll on important ongoing clinical trials evaluating promising investigational agents and combinations for EGFR mutation–positive NSCLC
