This Master Class will highlight exciting and important recent advances in the care of patients with lung cancer. Nearly all aspects of diagnosis, evaluation, and management of lung cancer have rocketed forward in a remarkably short span of time, resulting in a rapidly expanding array of treatment options that lead to better outcomes for all cancer stages. Key changes in best practices based on recent clinical and scientific discoveries will be discussed by experts in the field in a case-based interactive format. Presentations will include case-based discussion on rapidly evolving topics.
This activity is supported by an educational grant from Merck & Co., Inc., Rahway, NJ, USA.
