Start

Activity Details

Free CME
0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit
Released: November 14, 2019
Expires: November 14, 2020
30 minutes to complete

Accredited By

The University of Nebraska Medical Center, Center for Continuing Education

Target Audience

The target audience for this symposium is community and academic medical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with leukemia.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Evaluate clinical data for various TKI-based therapies in patients with CML, including newly diagnosed patients and those in later lines of therapy
  • Assess various treatment strategies for patients with relapsed/refractory ALL, in consideration of salvage status, MRD, and cytogenetics
  • Compare and contrast therapeutic approaches for newly diagnosed patients with AML, including patients who are both eligible and ineligible for intensive induction chemotherapy

Activity Description

Expert Insights is an accredited, videotaped discussion featuring Dr. Elias Jabbour and Dr. Susan O’Brien highlighting the most clinically relevant data on chronic and acute leukemias presented during a live symposium that was held at the 2019 Society of Hematologic Oncology Annual Meeting.

Statement of Educational Need

Several agents have changed the therapeutic landscape of leukemia (including CML, ALL, and AML), but despite their success, the search for new therapeutic options for these diseases is still important due to the emergence of primary or secondary resistance to treatment in patients and the difficulty of eradicating leukemia stem cells as the main “culprit” of the disease. Therefore, leukemia is still an important area of research aimed at improving the effectiveness of patient treatment. Clinicians must stay up to date of novel agents, combinations, and other strategies in order to maximize patient outcomes.

Topics of Discussion

  • CML: Moving Next-Generation TKIs Into Earlier Lines of Therapy
  • ALL: How Best to Manage Disease in the Relapsed/Refractory Setting
  • AML: Selecting Therapy for Newly Diagnosed Patients

Released: November 1, 2019
Expires: November 1, 2020
30 minutes to complete

Jointly Provided By

This activity is jointly provided by The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Bio Ascend.

Target Audience

The target audience for this symposium is community and academic medical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with lymphoma and myeloma.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Explain the mechanism of action of CAR T-cell–based therapies and the rationale for their investigation and use in patients with lymphoma and multiple myeloma (MM)
  • Evaluate clinical data of current and emerging CAR T-cell therapies for patients with lymphoma
  • Assess clinical trial results from CAR T cells being investigated in patients with MM
  • Anticipate adverse events (AEs) that may occur with CAR T-cell therapy and develop strategies to mitigate these AEs

Activity Description

Expert Insights is an accredited, videotaped discussion featuring Dr. Julie Vose and Dr. Bianca Santomasso highlighting the most clinically relevant data on lymphoma and myeloma presented during a live symposium that was held at the 2019 Society of Hematologic Oncology Annual Meeting.

Statement of Educational Need

CAR T cells have emerged as a highly effective therapy in patients with hematologic malignancies. However, multiple CAR T technologies are under investigation, all with various doses, lymphodepleting chemotherapy, disease subtypes under exploration, and adverse event profiles. Thus, clinicians treating patients with these agents need expert guidance to evaluate clinical data of CAR T therapy and plan strategies to appropriately integrate these approaches into practice now and as they become available.

Topics of Discussion

  • Overview of CAR T Cells and Current Data of Patients with Lymphoma
  • CAR T-Cell Therapy for Multiple Myeloma: The Future of Myeloma Care
  • Ongoing Efforts to Improve the Safety of CAR T-cell therapy: Cytokine Release Syndrome and Neurotoxicity

45 minutes to complete

Jointly Provided By

This activity is jointly provided by The Postgraduate Institute for Medicine and Bio Ascend.

Target Audience

The target audience for this activity is hematologists/oncologists, bone marrow transplant clinicians, and other healthcare professionals (oncology nurses and pharmacists, physician assistants, etc.) interested and/or involved in the treatment of patients with CLL/FL.

Learning Objectives

After participating in this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review clinical trial data of current and emerging therapies that are being investigated in patients with CLL
  • Evaluate the safety and efficacy data from clinical studies that are examining various treatment options and regimens in patients with FL
  • Discuss common adverse events that are associated with these therapies, and develop approaches to mitigate such adverse events
  • As new agents and regimens become available, develop strategies to safely and effectively integrate these treatment approaches in order to maximize patient outcomes

Activity Description

Podium to Practice is a CME-certified activity featuring two renowned experts who are actively engaged in the management and treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia and follicular lymphoma.

Statement of Educational Need

The management of FL and CLL is currently undergoing a dynamic, rapid, and very positive development. It is anticipated that the combination of targeted and non-chemotherapeutic drugs such as obinutuzumab, ibrutinib, idelalisib, and venetoclax will lead to deep, molecular, and long-lasting remissions. Clinicians will need to stay abreast of this changing landscape in order to offer their patients improved benefits, and potentially enroll eligible patients into clinical trials to examine novel therapies.

Topics of Discussion

  • Clinical data of trials being performed in newly diagnosed patients with CLL or FL
  • Trial results of agents being investigated in patients with relapsed/refractory CLL or FL
  • Common AEs observed with investigational agents/regimens
  • Strategies for integrating novel agents/regimens into practice that may be approved in the near future
