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 CLL.
This program is intended for global hematologists, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of patients using BTK inhibitors in the treatment of patients with CLL.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Discuss with patients differences between first- and next-generation BTK inhibitors in terms of molecular characteristics, selectivity, preclinical data, approved indications, dosing, safety profile, and efficacy
- Plan 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
- Evaluate ongoing clinical trials investigating available and emerging BTK inhibitors as single agents and in combination
