Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners to apply practice-changing clinical data and expert recommendations to optimize the use of current and emerging therapeutic strategies with BTK inhibitors in the care of their patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Target Audience
This program is intended for global hematologists, oncologists and other clinicians involved in the management of patients using BTK inhibitors in the treatment of patients with CLL.

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

  • Evaluate differences between first- and next-generation BTK inhibitors in terms of molecular characteristics, selectivity, preclinical data, approved indications, dosing, safety profile, and efficacy
  • Identify patient candidates for BTK inhibitor–based therapy, in either treatment naïve or previously treated CLL
  • Select optimal BTK inhibitor–based therapy for patients with CLL, taking into consideration guidelines, expert recommendation, and recent practice-changing clinical trial results
  • Recognize and manage adverse events and toxicities associated with BTK inhibitor therapy to support adherence, appropriate dosing, quality of life, and continuation of treatment
  • Assess ongoing clinical trials evaluating currently available and emerging BTK inhibitors (and BTK-based combinations) to aid clinical trial enrollment and predict new options in the clinic
