Overview

Attendees will gain an appreciation of the latest advances in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), including the nurse’s role in comprehensive biomarker testing strategies and biomarker-driven treatment approaches. Expert faculty will reflect on the lung cancer tumor board, with emphasis on the appropriate selection of targeted therapy based on patient- and biomarker-specific factors in oncogenic driver mutations. Activity participants will also explore strategies to improve communication between nurses and patients/caregivers in an effort to promote shared decision-making, reduce adverse events, and improve adherence.
