As key members of the interdisciplinary care team, thoracic surgeons play an essential role in collaborating and coordinating with their colleagues from other specialties to assess and manage patients with esophageal/GEJ cancer and determine the most appropriate treatment plans based on new evidence inclusive of local and systemic treatment modalities. Thoracic surgeons must also engage patients in shared decision-making to select appropriate treatment according to stage, tumor characteristics, and patient values and preferences, among other key factors. This activity will provide a comprehensive, practically oriented, multidisciplinary overview on the expanding role of immunotherapy in esophageal and GEJ cancer. The experts discuss essential evidence supporting clinical decisions and offer practical guidance on key clinical issues concerning the continued integration of immunotherapy into individualized management plans for patients with esophageal/GEJ cancer. Upon completion of this accredited CE activity, participants should be better able to: Summarize the biologic rationale for the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors in the multimodal treatment of locally advanced and early-stage esophageal/GEJ cancer, Appraise the latest safety and efficacy evidence and guideline recommendations on the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors in patients with locally advanced or early-stage esophageal/GEJ cancer, Implement a collaborative care model among surgical, medical, and radiation oncology specialists and the greater multidisciplinary team to integrate immunotherapy into multimodal treatment plans for eligible patients with locally advanced or early-stage esophageal/GEJ cancer based on recent evidence, patient- and disease-related factors, and guideline recommendations.
