Dr. Shirish Gadgeel on Managing Locally Advanced NSCLC
Thu, 11/26/2009 - 10:35
Howard (Jack) West, MD, Associate Clinical Professor, Medical Oncology, Executive Director, Employer Services, Founder, President and CEO of GRACE

Our next podcast slide presentation comes from Dr. Shirish Gadgeel, medical oncologist at Wayne State University in Detroit. He came out to Seattle for a physician education program I run and was kind enough to stay for our NSCLC Patient Education Forum, where he spoke on our Current Standards of Care for Locally Advanced (Stage III) NSCLC.

Here's his presentation in audio and video formats, along with the transcript and copies of the slides.




One theme he notes is that developing management plans in this setting requires careful discussion and integration of the various specialties. Care is individualized by the details of the patient's cancer, the health of the patient, and sometimes the strengths of the treating center.

Dr. Gadgeel is planing to join us as a guest faculty member in early 2010, so there will be opportunities to have him cover particular questions about this topic and others.
