Conference Brochure

Brain metastasis in lung cancer is organized by Physicians' Institute for Professional Development in Healthcare Lakarnas institut for professionell utveckling i sjukvarden (LIPUS) and will be held on Dec 04, 2020 at Lundqvist & Lindqvist KLARA STRAND, Stockholm, Sweden.

Target Audience:
Doctors in specialist training / ST, Completed specialists (Continuing education)

Description:
Treatment of brain metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a complex clinical problem. Whole-brain irradiation is of limited benefit and can lead to serious side effects. Stereotactic steel therapy also has limited benefit but may be relevant in patients with a few brain metastases. Surgery, with its attendant risk of complications, only applies to a small group of patients. Targeted therapies for oncogenically driven tumors, on the other hand, have been shown to be effective against brain metastases, but therapy resistance is a common problem in these cases.

Overall goals:
In this national course on brain metastatic NSCLC, we will summarize and discuss available treatment options for brain metastatic NSCLC. Our goal is to guide clinicians in decision-making of treatment for this difficult patient group

Results for the participant:
The aim of the course is to give the participant a good guide on how each lung cancer patient with brain metastases should be treated in the best evidence-based way and adapted to the patient's disease situation. Therefore, the course program has the structure that all possible treatment steps are presented and discussed.

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
