Activity Overview

This online Physicians’ Education Resource, LLC, (PER®) activity, Burst CME™ – Cancer Summaries and Commentaries: Update from Toronto: Advances in the Treatment of Lung Cancers, is designed to update physicians on data presented at the World Conference on Lung Cancer, which took place September 23-26, 2018, in Toronto, Canada. During this online activity, the program faculty, Karen Reckamp, MD, MS, will review 3 abstracts chosen as the most clinically relevant to facilitate integration of cutting-edge data into practice. For each abstract, a short summary of key clinical data is accompanied by expert perspectives that provide insight into how clinicians can apply these findings to their clinical practice to improve patient care.

Benefits of Participating

  • Increased knowledge of recent cutting-edge clinical trial results that impact treatment of patients with lung cancer
  • Hear expert perspectives on the clinical context of emerging data from the World Conference on Lung Cancer
  • Identify key ongoing clinical trials for patients with small cell lung cancer, ALK mutation–positive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), and locally advanced stage III NSCLC
