Description: Online training with immediate access upon enrollment. BioPharma Institute ReviewsThere has been a rapid increase in the incidence of lung cancer since the 1930s. The association between cigarette smoking and lung cancer was first proposed in 1941, and has been substantiated with epidemiological studies. Thus, as the numbers of cigarette-smoking individuals in a given population rises and falls, so do the rates of lung cancer. Lung cancer can be classified as either small cell lung cancer (SCLC) or non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), based on the characteristics of the disease and its response to treatment. This course describes the various treatment options and prognostic outcomes for the various stages and types of NSCLC.
Certification Requirements: Students must view the entire program and successfully pass an online, multiple-choice final assessment with >80% passing grade within a 90 day period of time (180 days for Professional Certification Programs). Certificate is accessible in PDF format immediately after satisfying requirements.
