The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of clinicians to implement best practices in the treatment of CLL.
This program is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who treat and manage patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Consider the efficacy and safety profile of the therapeutic agent along with patient characteristics and molecular features of CLL to individualize therapeutic strategies for newly diagnosed CLL
- Choose optimal treatment for relapsed/refractory CLL based on the available clinical data, guidelines, and expert recommendations
- Plan treatment strategies that sequence targeted agents to optimize patient outcomes and quality of life
- Evaluate the efficacy, toxicity profile and other practical management considerations associated with novel approved and investigational agents and combination regimens in CLL
- Manage adverse events associated with treatment approaches for CLL to ensure treatment compliance to improve clinical outcomes and quality of life
