This CME/CNE activity will review recent advances in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) incorporating data presented at the European Society For Medical Oncology (ESMO) 2018 Conference in Munich, Germany. The three expert faculty will analyze clinical trial data on the current science and emerging best practices for the treatment of NSCLC. The faculty will also discuss how to utilize biomarker testing and gene mutations to more effectively treat patients with NSCLC. Upon completion of this activity, learners will gain knowledge on how to implement emerging therapeutics of NSCLC to treat patients and ultimately improve patient outcomes.
