Lung Cancer Symposium: Early and Intermediate Lung Cancer

Providence, RI US
September 24, 2022

Lung cancer remains, all by itself, the second leading cause of death in the United States after heart disease.  As CT screening for lung cancer, as well as incidental discovery of lung nodules is on the rise, medical management of lung nodules and early-stage lung cancers requires improved coordination of patient care among the medical professions.

 The rapid progress in both surgical and non-surgical treatment of lung cancer has created a complex and sometimes confusing set of options and guidelines for both patients and their physicians. This symposium offers Medical providers a comprehensive update on the complex new information in this arena and available resources that impact treatment options. Better physician understanding of the different options will ensure that appropriate care is provided equitably to all patients.

Combined modality care may now be offered for all stages of disease, and multi-disciplinary care and coordination is essential. With a focus on screening, nodule management, and earlier stages this seminar will enhance practical knowledge for all allied professions involved in lung cancer care.

Target Audience

All allied professions involved in lung cancer care, including Primary Care, Pulmonology, Radiology, Pathology, Thoracic Surgery, Radiation Oncology, and Medical Oncology.  Attendees will learn the multi-disciplinary nature of the different approaches to treating both early and intermediate-stage lung cancer as well as the guidelines for diagnosis, staging, and management of this disease​​​​​​.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Identify the essential components for diagnosis and workup of a patient with lung cancer
  • Define the basics of the clinical and pathological staging of lung cancer
  • Describe the recent advances in the surgical treatment of lung cancer
  • Discuss the recent advances in the ablative treatment of lung cancer
  • Analyze the recent advances in medical treatment of lung cancer
