Overview

Oncology Best Practices™ is a series of interactive meetings hosted by leading cancer centers, large oncology practice groups, and community hospitals throughout the United States. Nationally renowned lung cancer experts will lead this meeting. The live session begins with a brief update that will review advances in the medical management of advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), including the identification of predictive molecular markers like MET. The incorporation of optimal testing strategies allows for targeted intervention and fosters personalized patient care. This activity will utilize a variety of formats, including presentation of new data, clinical scenarios exploring the evidence behind treatment decisions, adverse event management, and a faculty Q&A to encourage peer-to-peer and peer-to-expert interactions and the sharing of best practices. At the conclusion of the program, you will have time to ask the participating faculty questions, allowing for regional and institutional considerations to be brought up in an intimate environment.

Benefits of Attending

  • Interact with a nationally recognized lung cancer expert and local peers at each meeting.
  • Explore the application of clinical data and expert guidelines to common challenging patient scenarios.
  • Develop strategies for managing adverse events associated with MET inhibitors.
  • Learn about ongoing clinical trial opportunities for your patients with NSCLC.

Target Audience

This educational activity is directed toward a global audience of medical oncologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, and pathologists who treat patients with NSCLC. Physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of NSCLC are invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the biological role of MET alterations in untreated NSCLC and as a resistance mechanism to EGFR-targeted therapy for NSCLC.
  • Delineate tumor tissue testing and liquid biopsy strategies that should be undertaken prior to front-line treatment and in relapsed NSCLC settings to inform clinical decision-making among patients with MET alterations
  • Evaluate clinical trial safety and efficacy data on single-agent or combination strategies with MET-targeted agents that have been evaluated for the treatment of NSCLC.
