GAIN is an interdisciplinary summit that seeks to address clinical gaps in the diagnosis and care of patients with locally advanced and metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

The goal is to improve performance of a team of specialists who are responsible for appropriate staging, mediastinal lymph node assessment, tissue acquisition, biomarker analysis and immunotherapy in patients with NSCLC.

All attendees participate in multidisciplinary, interactive small-group sessions, which include:
  • Case-based Tumor Board discussions
  • Mediastinal anatomy review and exercises
  • Simulated exercises to acquire tissue samples followed by slide preparation and interpretation
  • Analysis of pathological samples
  • Guided review of treatment-focused cases with participant decision making
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be able to:
  • Explain the mechanisms of immunotherapies that have been studied for NSCLC
  • Describe and demonstrate the cognitive knowledge or technical skills required to obtain an adequate tissue sample for NSCLC diagnosis and classification
  • Identify current biomarkers utilized to categorize molecular and histologic features of NSCLC and their relevant applications for diagnosis, monitoring, and personalized care
  • Identify a NSCLC coordinated care plan among interdisciplinary colleagues and develop a plan for implementation
