Supported in part by a continuing education grant from Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.

After completing this online course, you will be able to:

  1. Review incidence of lung cancer in ILA/ILD patients and association of increased cancer risk with certain subtypes.
  2. Describe the various definitions centered on the concept of oligometastatic disease.
  3. Review and critique existing frailty scoring instruments and determine which are most appropriate in the evaluation of elderly patients with lung cancer.
  4. Review major classifications and basic biology of biomarkers in clinical use and under investigation to support early diagnosis and ongoing follow-up of NSCLC, to establish a framework for understanding their real-world utility.
  5. Recognize the current epidemic of lung cancer, and understand the basis for an increased risk of lung cancer in women.
