Community Practice Connections™ 18th Annual Winter Lung Cancer Conference®

Release Date: March 31, 2021
Expiration Date: March 31, 2022

Activity Overview

Therapy of patients with thoracic malignancies continues to advance on several fronts, including treatment of earlier disease stages and development of new agents. Lung cancer is comprised of multiple disease subsets that are characterized by distinct histologic and molecular markers. Targeting these characteristics defines how personalized care strategies should be applied in the management of patients with these tumors. Classification of lung cancers continues to evolve as basic science advances. Our understanding of resistance mechanisms and immune pathways (such as immune checkpoints) has expanded treatment options for patients with advanced forms of lung cancer. Many of these strategies are either utilized or being assessed in clinical trials in multiple lines of care.

This Community Practice Connection™ program provides an in-depth review of some of the key highlights from the 18th Annual Winter Lung Cancer Conference®, held in February 2021. This unique and engaging multi-media activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects of managing patients with lung cancer, putting recent clinical trial data into clinical context. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.
