Lung Cancer: Learning from the past, focusing on the future, treating in the present
The management of non-small cell lung cancer has undergone major transformation in the last three years driven by the increasing using of immunotherapy as well as local ablative therapies in advanced stage disease. Translation of these practices into community based setting is important as overall survival in lung cancer has dramatically improved with incorporation of improved treatment. This educational activity will help participants to better apply new treatment strategies so that patient outcomes can be enhanced.
The activity is designed to meet the interests of practicing radiation oncologists, radiation oncology residents, medical and clinical physicists, nurses and all other health professionals involved in the field of radiation oncology.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Apply the increasing role of radiotherapy in advance stage lung cancer.
- Describe the instances when radiotherapy for advanced stage disease is not indicated.
