Statement of Need

Despite lung cancer being the leading cause of cancer mortality, its survival rate has continued to increase over the past 5 years. However, chasms in early diagnosis, treatment options and access, survival rate, and more remain for racial and ethnic underserved populations. A culmination of biases, disparities, and inequities continues a cycle of inadequate oncological treatment for lung cancer, thus resulting in delayed diagnosis, clinical management and treatment, prognosis, and survival rate.

This live Q&A session is your opportunity to ask questions based on the CME Outfitters BriefCase that focused on racial and ethnic disparities and health inequities in lung cancer.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Recognize the impact of health inequities on patients with lung cancer and develop individual treatment strategies for optimal clinical outcomes.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from the Johnson & Johnson Institute and the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, NPs, nurses/nurse navigators, pharmacists, and dietitians specializing in oncology, pathology, radiology, pulmonology, and primary care.
