The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and performance of learners to integrate recent findings into the treatment of patients with CLL/SLL.
This program is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with CLL/SLL.
At the conclusion of this activity, learners should be able to:
- Design treatment plans for treatment-naive and relapsed/refractory CLL/SLL, including consideration of the agent’s toxicity profile, biomarkers, comorbidities, and patient preference
- Appraise intraclass differences among agents with the similar therapeutic target in CLL/SLL, regarding selectivity, target binding, efficacy, and adverse event profiles
- Evaluate the evolving role of measurable residual disease, allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant, and CAR T-cell therapy
- Develop strategies to address unique clinical challenges and leverage an understanding of the current data and NCCN Guideline to optimize outcomes for patients with CLL/SLL
