Statement of Need

The discovery of molecular alterations that drive tumor initiation and progression has revolutionized the treatment strategy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) by matching targeted therapies to a specific mutation, leading to significantly improved therapeutic efficacy. However, despite the initial effectiveness of targeted therapy for NSCLC, most patients ultimately develop acquired resistance with subsequent disease progression, making it imperative for clinicians to receive up-to-date education on evaluating new therapeutic options to improve outcomes and better tailor treatment strategies.

In this CME Outfitters Live and OnDemand, integrations of animated 3-D models will provide visual representation of the mechanisms and characteristics of antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) in NSCLC to complement expert faculty insights and evidence supporting testing strategies to identify predictive biomarkers, emerging treatment options for advanced or metastatic NSCLC, and best practices for managing patients with lung cancer in the face of COVID-19 and beyond.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Apply molecular testing to identify predictive biomarkers for targeted therapy in advanced NSCLC.
  • Evaluate the rationale for emerging therapies in advanced or metastatic NSCLC
  • Employ best practices to manage lung cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The following learning objectives pertain only to those requesting CNE or CPE credit:

  • Summarize how molecular testing can identify predictive biomarkers for targeted therapy in advanced NSCLC.
  • Evaluate the rationale for emerging therapies in advanced or metastatic NSCLC.
  • Describe best practices to manage lung cancer during the COVID-19 pandemic.
