Topics to Be Discussed

  • Evolving Role of Neoadjuvant Therapy for Localized Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)
  • Novel Approaches to Adjuvant Treatment for Localized NSCLC

Target Audience
This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of lung cancer.

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

  • Assess the anticipated benefits, risks and long-term outcomes associated with adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapy for localized non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and consider this information when counseling patients regarding therapeutic recommendations.
  • Analyze the biological basis for the investigation of immune checkpoint inhibitors for patients with localized NSCLC, and evaluate available data documenting the efficacy and safety of anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies as neoadjuvant and adjuvant therapy.
  • Evaluate published clinical research data with EGFR-directed therapy as adjuvant treatment for localized NSCLC with an EGFR mutation, and identify patients for whom this novel approach would be warranted.
  • Recognize adverse events associated with anti-PD-1/PD-L1 antibodies and EGFR-directed therapy for patients with localized NSCLC, and understand the supportive strategies available to minimize and manage these toxicities.
  • Recall the design of ongoing clinical trials evaluating novel investigational strategies for localized NSCLC, and appropriately counsel patients about availability and participation.
