This course aims to provide healthcare professionals with comprehensive knowledge and skills for managing immune-related toxicities in patients with squamous non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of researchers and healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat patients with lung cancer including medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, advanced practice nurses and physician assistants.
Upon completion of this activity, the participants should be able to: 
  • Recognize the currently approved immune checkpoint inhibitors (ICIs)-based regimens in advanced NSCLC.
  • Implement effective techniques for identifying and managing immune-related adverse events (irAEs) in patients during ICI treatment and after its discontinuation.
  • Consider complex cases in a multidisciplinary manner, namely with colleagues from other specialties.
  • Manage the side effects of the immune-suppressive drugs given to treat irAEs.
