Program Overview
This program will provide expert perspectives to facilitate state-of-the-art clinical management strategies for patients with CLL/SLL, including information on the latest practice impacting data on recent advances in the personalization of care for patients with CLL/SLL.

Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of multidisciplinary team learners in the care of patients with CLL using evidence-based and guideline-directed best practices.

Target Audience
This program is intended for community-based medical hematologists/oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, advanced practice providers, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with CLL.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Plan therapeutic approaches for treatment-naive and relapsed/refractory CLL/SLL, taking into consideration available clinical data, the agent’s toxicity profile, prognostic variables, comorbidities, and patient preference
  • Appraise the differences in selectivity, binding, efficacy, and adverse event profiles of agents with a similar molecular target used to treat CLL/SLL
  • Develop multidisciplinary management plans for patients with CLL/SLL to optimize quality of life and address racial-related and age-related disparities in care
  • Manage treatment-related symptoms in patients with CLL/SLL using guidelines and expert recommendations based on real-world experience to optimally adjust, discontinue, or change the patient’s current therapeutic plan 
  • Evaluate the evolving role of measurable/minimal residual disease, allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant, CAR T-cell therapy, and other novel therapeutics for CLL/SLL
