Activity Description & Educational Objectives
In this three-part CME/CNE video panel discussion, experts from several disciplines including a caregiver/patient advocate delve into an extended case vignette to elucidate the challenges and useful approaches in NSCLC care for applying patient-centered concepts to practice. Topics of discussion include the nuances of interdisciplinary collaboration and effective communication among providers and with patients and caregivers, what “shared decision-making” really means, how to balance the preferences of the patient with the available evidence, and how to determine the best course of management when there is a lack of concrete evidence to guide decision-making.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Establish effective patient-centered communication strategies to foster meaningful interactions and cooperation among clinicians, patients with lung cancer, and their families/caregivers.
- Provide reliable, accurate education, information, and support to patients with lung cancer and their caregivers to help them to become engaged in their care planning and delivery.
- Implement effective transdisciplinary collaboration strategies to ensure comprehensive, coordinated, and continuous team-based care.
- Discuss the latest evidence and consensus recommendations regarding diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer.
- Develop the best possible, individualized care plan for each patient with lung cancer that is based on the latest evidence and guideline recommendations and considers the medical, social, and cultural needs and preferences of the patient.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of medical oncologists, oncology nurses, radiation oncologists, pathologists, and other clinicians involved in lung cancer care.
