Continuum of Care for Nonresectable Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer

This activity is a short (3) webinar series on stage III unresectable NSCLC and the full continuum of care. A core group of multidisciplinary faculty (medonc/radonc cochairs) with other specialties included related to the lecture (pulmonologist, thoracic surgeon, physicist, dosimetrist). The first webinar will focus on appropriate diagnosis and referrals. The second webinar will focus on non surgical NSCLC and examine the full continuum of care. The final webinar will review challenging cases to improve patient care and outcomes. Key components of all webinars will emphasize interprofessional communications through the patient care.

Target Audience

The activity is designed to meet the interests of radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, pathologists and radiation oncology residents.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this activity, learners should be able to:

    • Identify key players involved in multidisciplinary lung cancer care for unresectable Stage III NSCLC.
    • Create a strategy to manage pneumonitis with combination chemoradiation and durvalumab.
    • Utilize interdisciplinary care to optimize radiation planning for patients with unresectable Stage III NSCLC.
