Community Practice Connections™: Making Critical Decisions in EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancers: How to Apply Evidence to Decide What to Do When the Patient is There in Front of You

Release Date: August 31, 2017
Expiration Date: August 31, 2018
Media: Internet - based

 

Activity Overview

Community Practice Connections™: Making Critical Decisions in EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancers: How to Apply Evidence to Decide What to Do When the Patient Is There in Front of You provides case-based summaries of clinical evidence guiding therapy for patients with non–small cell lung cancers (NSCLCs) and mutations in the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) gene. Clinical scenarios include first-line therapy, characterizing and treating acquired resistance, choosing subsequent lines of therapy, and managing brain metastases. Interactive clinical vignettes are followed by short video interviews with leading experts in the management of patients with lung cancers. The video interviews address decision points in the clinical vignettes, as well as questions commonly faced in the community oncology practice setting by health care professionals engaged in the care of patients with EGFR mutation-positive NSCLCs.
