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
- 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
- Analyze recent efficacy and safety data on emerging checkpoint inhibitors, alone and in combination with other agents, in the treatment of NSCLC
This educational activity is supported by a grant from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals LP.
