Overview

The number of new lung cancer therapies for Non Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC) have exploded over the past few years - so has the complexity of treatment, and the need to co-manage patients with a multidisciplinary approach. Oncologists who have traditionally worked independently, are now encouraged to collaborate with colleagues to ensure that the right procedures are followed and appropriate tissue is obtained for the correct treatment plan. It is our goal of this CME activity to bring together the community of medical professionals that co-manage these patients to optimize patient outcomes. Participants will gain insight into novel techniques for the staging of lung cancer,new surgical treatments, controversies in disease, immunotherapy advancements and the management of targeted therapies.

Registration Fee:

$165 for physicians

$125 for nurses, fellow, residents and other allied health professionals.
