  • Overview

    The objective of this program is to enhance knowledge and awareness of the latest clinical trial data for immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs) that have been approved for use in the perioperative setting. Furthermore, the program aims to improve clinicians’ understanding of the ideal candidates for neoadjuvant/adjuvant ICI therapy, the sequencing of agents, and the challenges associated with comparing treatments across trials with varying criteria. 

    Through our focused microlearning approach, we will explore the ongoing debate surrounding the optimal timing of immunotherapy in relation to surgery. We will also delve into the role of predictive biomarkers in therapy selection and address the question of whether there is a universally “best” approach for choosing between neoadjuvant or adjuvant therapy, or if a personalized approach to treatment should be adopted for each patient.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including medical oncologists and thoracic surgeons, as well as other clinicians involved in the management of patients with NSCLC.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Apply the latest evidence to optimize the use of neoadjuvant immunotherapy treatment options to improve outcomes of patients with resectable NSCLC
    • Apply the latest evidence to optimize the use of adjuvant immunotherapy treatment options to improve outcomes of post-resection NSCLC patients
    • Evaluate current and emerging evidence to inform patient selection and treatment strategies with perioperative immunotherapy in early-stage NSCLC
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and Total CME, LLC. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
