This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic.
Patients with underlying health conditions such as lung cancer are at greater risk for infection or complications from COVID-19. Because of this increased risk, it is important that these patients are carefully managed, with telemedicine replacing in-person visits where possible. However, monitoring patients via telemedicine requires special attention, particularly because symptoms of COVID-19 infection are similar to common adverse events associated with lung cancer treatment.
This course will provide clinicians with the most up-to-date guidance on managing lung cancer during the current pandemic, including information on the pathophysiology of Sars-Cov-2, the risk of infection in patients with lung cancer, and strategies to manage patient care and counsel through telemedicine. Some topics covered:
Course Type: Live Webinar
Number of Credits: 1 Credit
Credit Type: CME/CE-Certified, MOC-Eligible Credit

As physicians, it’s clear we don’t drive the healthcare car, but maybe we will be able to argue for the passenger seat up front instead of being kidnapped in the trunk. TMA can help us.
