The best practices for management of patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC continue to evolve as a result of advances in molecular testing and targeted treatment. Understanding what, when, and how to test, as well as how to select therapy, throughout the continuum of advanced NSCLC is paramount. In this activity, based on a recent live symposium held in San Diego, California, experts in EGFR-mutant NSCLC provide a concise but comprehensive overview of all the recent key evidence and new research directions and provide practical guidance for how to navigate clinical decisions in EGFR-mutant NSCLC in different settings and patient populations. Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to: Discuss the latest recommendations for tissue- and blood-based molecular testing to evaluate EGFR mutation status in patients with advanced/metastatic NSCLC, Assess the characteristics, safety/efficacy profiles, and indications of the different EGFR inhibitors available for the treatment of EGFR-positive NSCLC in different settings and patient populations, including those with brain or leptomeningeal metastases, Evaluate the current evidence related to the mechanisms of acquired resistance to the various EGFR TKIs used in the first line and subsequent therapy of advanced EGFR-mutant NSCLC, Implement best practices related to molecular testing for EGFR mutations through the continuum of advanced NSCLC, and interpret results to guide treatment selection, Implement evidence-based, individualized treatment plans for patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC.
