All other healthcare professionals completing this course will be issued a statement of participation.
Clinicians need expert guidance for the use of existing EGFR mutant-targeted agents safely and effectively, as well as planning for optimal integration of new agents and indications into practice when they become available. This online roundtable discussion will aim to provide healthcare providers with clinical recommendations to address existing and new therapy options for patients with NSCLC.
The target audience for this activity is community and academic medical oncologists, pulmonologists, allied health professionals, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with EGFR-altered NSCLC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Assess current testing guidelines for patients diagnosed with metastatic NSCLC, including recommendations for EGFR and MET testing
- Evaluate current therapies available for patients with NSCLC that harbor EGFR mutations and alterations, including safety and efficacy results from pivotal clinical trials
- Identify mitigation strategies to combat treatment-related adverse events that may occur with the use of EGFR-directed therapies, and educate patients and caregivers regarding these adverse events
