The Lung Cancer Subcommittee has identified the following immunotherapy-related issues as areas of focus and is working with ICLIO to offer peer-to-peer webinars on the following topics:

Reflex testing guidelines with checkpoint inhibitors
Immune-related adverse events (irAEs)
EMR/EHR best practices
An “Ask the Expert” FAQ session

In addition, the subcommittee recommends the development of information cards (for patients and multidisciplinary team members) that highlight drug/biologic information, e.g., toxicity and supportive care information.
