Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge, confidence, competence, and performance of learners in understanding and applying the latest science and clinical trial data on current and emerging anti–LAG-3 immunotherapies across tumor types to clinical practice.

Target Audience
This program is intended for medical oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with solid tumors.

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

  • Explain the mechanism of action of LAG-3 inhibitors and the rationale for combining with other cancer treatment options
  • Describe emerging clinical trial evidence of the use of anti–LAG-3 immunotherapies across tumor types
  • Identify adverse events associated with anti–LAG-3 immunotherapies and combinations to implement supportive management strategies
  • Integrate new data into clinical practice and identify patients eligible for clinical trials
