- Illustrate the potential toxicities, particularly severe long-term side effects and the approaches to minimize them
Following the presentations there will be ample opportunity for the audience to submit questions/comments to the faculty and discussion via Internet chat.
This CME live webinar series is designed to meet the educational needs of healthcare professionals who diagnose and treat patients with lung cancer, including medical oncologists, thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and advanced practice nurses and physicians' assistants.
