The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in integrating the latest data and strategies into treatment plans for patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals who care for adolescent/young adult and adult patients with acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Select optimal asparaginase-containing regimens for adolescent/young adult and adult patients with ALL based on clinical data and expert recommendations
- Identify optimal methods of measuring and monitoring subclinical hypersensitivity or silent inactivation
- Implement optimal approaches to achieve continued and active asparaginase treatment, including activity level testing and premedication
- Integrate newly approved dosing schedules or recombinant asparaginase formulations when considering asparaginase re-exposure of asparaginase treatments in adolescent/young adult and adult patients with ALL
- Discuss recent clinical evidence and current recommendations for optimizing the therapeutic regimens for AYA ALL patients with pediatric-inspired protocols
