Relevant aspects of the new ERS/ESTS Pleural Mesothelioma Guideline

Chair: Nick Maskell Speaker: Arnaud Scherpereel

Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is still a relevant thoracic oncological entity going along with a very poor prognosis. However, diagnostic and therapeutic modalities have well advanced over the last years. ERS and ESTS provide a joint update of their evidenced-based MPM guideline. It seems highly important to keep pace with these new promising developments in MPM to provide best personalized care to MPM patients.

Educational aims

Based on illustrative case presentations, the audience will be given deep insight into the new ERS/ESTS MPM guideline recommendations and their underlying evidence. Evidence-based pathways through the diagnostic as well as the therapeutic phases will be highlighted.

What is a webinar?

The webinar closely simulates a lecture-based teaching experience. The speaker can interact with the audience, just as in a classroom setting.

This webinar comprises 45-minute lecture followed by a 15-minute question-and-answer sessions. During the webinar you will be asked to share your opinion on issues related to the topic using interactive polls. Your answers are not evaluated but participation is mandatory to obtain the CME credits.

All participants will be able to hear the lecturer and see the slides throughout the presentation. As a participant you will be able to pose questions or discuss ideas with the other participants via the text chat facility and the speaker will respond to the questions via the microphone.
