In partnership with Clinical Care Options, GRACE Founder and President H. Jack West, MD provides this informational video regarding immunotherapy for advanced NSCLC and discussing goals and treatments with your health care providers. We invite you to watch and join the conversation.
For those dealing with questions regarding immune checkpoint inhibitor therapy, we have developed another helpful downloadable pdf for patients, Understanding the Current Landscape of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitor Therapy in Advanced NSCLC: A Resource for Patients.
Also in partnership with Clinical Care Options, we have developed a helpful interactive online tool to help you understand more about your disease and treatment options.
Did you recently receive a diagnosis of non small cell lung cancer?
GRACE has partnered with Clinical Care Options to develop an interactive online tool to help you understand more about your disease and treatment options. The goal of this tool is to help you better understand your diagnosis of locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC, to better understand your treatment options, and to become partners with the oncology team instead of being a bystander in your cancer care. A series of questions developed by the experts allow you to select information about yourself and your cancer that are necessary to consider when making treatment choices in advanced NSCLC.
Answer a series of multiple-choice questions and then get treatment options chosen by the 5 lung cancer experts listed below.
- David R. Gandara, MD, UC Davis Health
- Melissa L. Johnson, MD, Sarah Cannon
- Suresh S. Ramalingam, MD, Emory Winship Cancer Institute
- Heather Wakelee, MD, Stanford University
- H. Jack West, MD, City of Hope
