This Medical Crossfire® filmed panel discussion aims to ensure the knowledge and ability of oncology healthcare professionals to apply evidence on immuno-oncology strategies and emerging biomarker information that can assist them to personalize care for their patients with advanced NSCLC. Medical Crossfire® brings together internationally known experts for guidance, interpretation and opinions on current clinical trial data and application to practice. The panel will review patient scenarios, reflect on how they might handle particular cases, integrate relevant evidence into real-world treatment, and compare their practices with those of other experts in the field, and peers, as a vehicle that enhances learning of key emerging treatment concepts. This panel discussion will be filmed and endured online in PER’s legacy Medical Crossfire® multi-module format, available on www.gotoper.com.
