Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, competence, and performance of physicians and other healthcare providers so they can confidently and competently integrate CAR T-cell therapy into their clinical practices.

Target Audience 
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare providers who treat and manage patients with B-cell lymphomas, CLL, or multiple 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-cells
  • Identify characteristics of patients who are candidates appropriate for treatment with CAR T-cell therapy
  • Integrate into practice clinical trial data on CAR T-cell–based therapies for the treatment of patients with leukemia or B-cell lymphomas
  • Evaluate emerging clinical data and novel approaches to CAR T-cell therapy for patients with myeloma or CLL
  • Manage toxicities associated with CAR T-cell therapy using available guidelines and online clinical resources and tools
