The goal of this activity is to improve participants’ competence in using BTK inhibitors (and emerging BTK inhibitor–based combinations) to improve treatment outcomes for patients with MCL, MZL, CLL/SLL, and WM.
This program is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with MCL, MZL, CLL/SLL, and WM.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Plan optimal, individualized therapeutic strategies for patients with MCL, MZL, CLL/SLL, and WM considering recent practice changing clinical trial results
- Consider existing and emerging clinical research data evaluating currently available and emerging BTK inhibitors (and BTK inhibitor–based combinations) in the formulation of therapeutic recommendations for patients with MCL, MZL, CLL/SLL, and WM
- Recognize and manage adverse events and toxicities associated with BTK inhibitor therapy to support quality of life and continuation of treatment
- Explain to patients the importance of and provide strategies for optimal adherence to prescribed BTK inhibitors
- Assess ongoing clinical trials evaluating currently available and emerging BTK inhibitors (and BTK inhibitor–based combinations) to aid clinical trial enrollment
Physician Continuing Medical Education
