This educational activity is specifically designed to meet the needs of medical oncologists, pulmonologists, and other multidisciplinary specialists involved in the treatment of patients with NSCLC.

After successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Assess recent data on the efficacy/safety of checkpoint inhibitor therapy for the treatment of NSCLC
  • Implement appropriate treatments for NSCLC that incorporate the use of checkpoint inhibitors
  • Analyze recent efficacy and safety data on emerging checkpoint inhibitors, alone and in combination with other agents, in the treatment of NSCLC
  • Describe the benefits and limitations of using PD-L1 as a biomarker to guide treatment selection when managing NSCLC
  • Develop management strategies to address irAEs related to the use of checkpoint inhibitors

This educational activity is supported by a grant from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP.
