The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of oncology specialists and other clinicians to integrate immune checkpoint inhibitors into treatment of their patients with stage III non-small-cell lung cancer.
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare providers who care for patients with non-small-cell lung cancer.
- Discuss the biologic rationale for using immune checkpoint inhibitors in patients with locally advanced NSCLC
- Plan optimal, individualized therapeutic strategies for patients with stage III NSCLC, considering the available clinical evidence, expert recommendations, and patient preferences
- Identify subsets of patients with stage III NSCLC most likely to benefit from durvalumab consolidation after definitive platinum-based chemotherapy and concurrent radiation therapy
- Identify subsets of patients with stage III NSCLC most likely to benefit from pembrolizumab
- Describe ways that the use of immunotherapy in earlier stages of disease may require a different understanding of risk/benefit and applicable subsets of patients
- Manage immune-mediated adverse events with the use of automated decision support resources and guidelines
