Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of learners to integrate novel therapies (including BTK and PI3K inhibitors, next-generation antibodies, BCL-2 inhibitors, CAR T-cell, investigational agents, and immunotherapeutic strategies currently under evaluation) and recent findings into the treatment of patients with mature B-cell NHLs.

Target Audience
This program is intended for pharmacists, managed care professionals, and healthcare providers who care for patients with B-cell malignancies.

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

  • Consider efficacy and safety profile of the novel classes of therapies (including BTK and PI3K inhibitors, antibodies, BCL-2 inhibitors, CAR T-cell, investigational agents, and immunotherapeutic strategies currently under evaluation) with patient characteristics and molecular features to individualize therapeutic strategies for patients with mature B-cell lymphomas
  • Consider mechanisms of action and efficacy and safety profile differences among different agents in the same class of therapy to select treatments most likely to improve outcomes
  • Assess challenging questions regarding the use of novel therapies in mature B-cell lymphomas and discuss the ways that pharmacists can optimize therapy, anticipate adverse effects, and optimize clinical outcomes alongside other members of the oncology healthcare team
  • Manage unique adverse events associated with novel agent classes in the management of mature B-cell lymphomas to optimize care and quality of life
  • Identify patients suitable for enrollment on ongoing clinical studies investigating novel therapies in mature B-cell lymphomas
