Marilyn K. Glassberg, MD - Systemic Sclerosis–Associated Interstitial Lung Disease: Expert Insights on Early Diagnosis and Optimal Management
Go online to PeerView.com/UBX860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a rare, often fatal, connective tissue disease that affects multiple organ systems. Early diagnosis, and thus earlier treatment, is critical to prevent disease progression, with its irreversible fibrosis and organ damage. In particular, regular monitoring for lung involvement, especially interstitial lung disease (ILD), is vital, as ILD occurs in the majority of patients with SSc and is now the number one cause of death in these patients. Treatment for SSc-associated ILD has historically been limited, with no FDA-approved options; however, novel therapies have shown promise in clinical trials. In this PeerView MasterClass, a panel of expert faculty offer insight into the pathogenesis of SSc-associated ILD, the burden of disease on patient quality of life, and diagnostic modalities and challenges. The faculty also discuss risk factors associated with disease progression and severity, current and emerging therapies, and the importance of multidisciplinary treatment and effective patient/provider communication to optimize patient outcomes. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Recognize the signs and symptoms of systemic sclerosis (SSc) to facilitate earlier diagnosis and treatment to help prevent disease progression, Assess the relationship between disease pathophysiology and the signs and symptoms of systemic sclerosis-interstitial lung disease (SSc-ILD) and the need for timely screening to initiate appropriate treatment, Employ the latest evidence-based recommendations for diagnosis, risk assessment, and management of SSc-ILD, Evaluate emerging therapies for the treatment of SSc-ILD in terms of their efficacy and safety, Communicate effectively with patients to provide them with disease- and treatment-related education.

Kathryn Beal, MD, and Sandip Patel, MD - Challenges, Controversies, and Opportunities in the Management of EGFR-Mutant Lung Cancer With Central Nervous System Metastases: Working Together to Improve Patient Outcomes
Go online to PeerView.com/PPF860 to view the activity, download slides and practice aids, and complete the post-test to earn credit. Central nervous system (CNS) metastases occur commonly in patients with lung cancer, and those patients with epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR)-mutant non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are particularly prone to their development. Treatment of brain metastases is challenging, and there are varied perspectives among different specialists about the best approach—if, when, and how to use local therapies, systemic therapies, or different treatment modalities in combination or sequence, etc. Clinical trials are underway to try to answer some of these critical questions about which treatment strategies yield the best results for these patients. This PeerView Live MasterClass and Practicum on-demand educational activity features a panel of multidisciplinary experts in EGFR-mutant lung cancer and CNS metastases who discuss the evolving evidence, clinical challenges, and practicalities of patient care. Real cases are debated from multiple perspectives, with an emphasis on information and guidance relevant for radiation oncologists. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Describe molecular pathways that drive malignancy in lung cancer and the oncogenic activation of tyrosine kinases, such as mutations in EGFR, and the epidemiology and presentation of CNS metastases in EGFR-mutant lung cancer, Discuss the mechanisms of action, characteristics, and safety/efficacy profiles of the various EGFR TKIs available for the treatment of EGFR-mutant NSCLC throughout the continuum of advanced disease, including in patients with CNS metastases, Summarize the efficacy and safety data of available and emerging treatment strategies used in the management of brain or leptomeningeal metastases in patients with EGFR-mutant NSCLC, including the use of local therapies such as radiation, systemic therapies such as EGFR TKIs, and sequential/combination treatment approaches, Implement individualized treatment plans for patients with EGFR-mutant lung cancer with CNS metastases, including in the context of clinical practice or clinical trials, based on the latest evidence, recommendations, and effective multidisciplinary collaboration and coordination of care
