Overview

Attendees will gain an appreciation of the latest advances in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), including updates on epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), and the importance of EGFR mutation testing and broader molecular profiling to tailor therapy and improve patient outcomes. Expert faculty will review evolving treatment paradigms in EGFR-mutated NSCLC, explore molecular profiling incorporating newer testing modalities, examine how treatments align to individual patient characteristics, and discuss effective strategies to improve communication between clinician and patient/caregiver to reduce adverse effects and improve adherence.
