GENERAL THORACIC SURGERY: Challenges in Predicting Recurrence After Resection of Node-Negative Non-Small is organized by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS).

Release Date: Nov 01, 2018
Expiry Date: Nov 01, 2020

Accreditation: 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™

Each STS CME activity in The Annals consists of a self-study test on an original article from one of the journal's major subject categories (Adult Cardiac Surgery, General Thoracic Surgery, Congenital Heart Surgery, and Cardiothoracic Anesthesiology), a statement of the learning objectives and an evaluation of the activity.

Learning Objective:
After reading this article, the learner should be able to:
• identify the frequency of those lung cancer resection patients that are node negative.
• identify the frequency that resected node negative lung resection patients will recur.
• recognize the tumor factors that are considered more likely to be associated with recurrence.
• describe where the resected node negative lung cancer patients recur—local, regional, or systemic.
• identify the median time for resected node negative lung cancer to recur.

Target Audience

The intended audience consists of thoracic and cardiothoracic surgeons, pediatric cardiac surgeons, general surgeons, anesthesiologists, oncologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, and radiologists. MDs and DOs can take the CME activities for credit; non-MDs and non-DOs should not claim credit.
