Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve participants’ knowledge of and competence in integrating CAR T-cell therapy into the treatment of patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma.

Target Audience 
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare providers who treat and manage patients with leukemia, lymphoma, or myeloma who are candidates for CAR T-cell therapies.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the biologic principles underlying CAR T-cell therapy, structure and function of the CAR, and the mechanism of action of CAR T-cell
  • Identify characteristics of patients that are appropriate for treatment with CAR T-cell therapy
  • Review the clinical trial data of CAR T-cell–based therapies for the treatment of leukemia and lymphoma patients, and describe where CAR T-cell therapies might fit into the treatment landscape
  • Evaluate emerging clinical data and novel approaches to CAR T-cell therapy for patients with myeloma
  • Based on the current best evidence, implement strategies for managing toxicities associated with CAR T-cell therapy
  • Recall ongoing clinical trials evaluating CAR T-cell therapy for the treatment of leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma to aid referral of appropriate patients
