Potentially practice-changing data from clinical trials in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) were presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2016 Congress on October 7–11 in Copenhagen, Denmark. These data may not only lead to new treatment options but also help clinicians use existing treatment options more effectively. In this video presentation, two leading experts in the management of NSCLC review key results presented at ESMO 2016 and provide insights on how the results may influence practice today.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of pulmonologists, oncologists, and other health care professionals involved in the diagnosis, treatment, or management of patients with NSCLC.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss molecular screening of NSCLC
- Assess clinical trial data of emerging therapies for the treatment of NSCLC presented at ESMO 2016
- Develop data-driven, individualized treatment plans to improve treatment selection and outcomes for patients with NSCLC
