Lung - Refresher 2021

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.

This activity is available from April 5, 2021, through 11:59 p.m. Eastern time on April 4, 2024.
