Engaging Multidisciplinary Teams to Improve Patient Outcomes With NSCLC Using Educational Resources (EMPOWER).

The aim of the Engaging Multidisciplinary Teams to Improve Patient Outcomes With NSCLC using Educational Resources (EMPOWER) initiative is to determine optimal methods to evaluate and treat patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) using assessment of the molecular biology of the tumor.

To achieve this goal, the following project objectives and assessments were developed:

1. Identify barriers in community-based systems for collecting proper tissue samples and performing assays for biomarkers
2. Conduct team-based train-the-trainer programs using evidence-based education and assessment tools that serve as change agents for community-based systems and larger networks
3. Provide operational and educational support to multidisciplinary teams working collaboratively in the evaluation and management of patients with NSCLC within these systems
