Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of hematologists/oncologists, community oncologists, oncology nurses and NPs, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  • Differentiate the characteristics and clinical outcomes associated with FDA-approved BTK inhibitors
  • Analyze the safety and efficacy of BTK inhibitors for the treatment of CLL
  • Summarize emerging approaches for using BTK inhibitors to treat CLL, including combination therapy and sequencing considerations
  • Formulate individualized treatment plans for patients in the VHA/MHS/DoD system with CLL based on intrinsic characteristics of the patient, the disease, and the treatment

Activity Description

With the recent advances in targeted BTK inhibitor therapies for CLL, the use of approved and investigational agents is anticipated to expand over the coming years. The introduction of first- and second-generation BTK inhibitors into the clinic have provided additional effective treatment options but have also created uncertainty over differences in mechanism of action, pharmacologic properties, efficacy, and safety among the available agents. This activity will help clinicians to be better prepared with a comprehensive understanding of the appropriate clinical utility of BTK inhibitors that could significantly impact patient outcomes. The expert guidance and interpretation of the clinical significance of emerging clinical data provided in this activity, will help to improve the ease of assessment and incorporation of BTK inhibitors into clinical practice.

Statement of Educational Need

To provide optimal patient care, clinicians must be prepared with a comprehensive understanding of the appropriate clinical utility of BTK inhibitors that could significantly impact patient outcomes.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of community oncologists, hematologists, hematologists/oncologists, oncology nurses, NPs, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the criteria for diagnosis and initiation of therapy for patients with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia, and use this information to guide initial workup and treatment decision-making
  • Assess the safety and efficacy of practice-changing clinical trial findings of current and emerging agents for Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia
  • Integrate current guidelines, available clinical trial data, and real-world findings into individualized strategies for treatment selection, sequencing, and monitoring of Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia

Activity Description

This education activity is designed to provide the healthcare team with the latest developments and critical insights into treating their patients with Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia. This education will support the healthcare professional in his/her practice setting with the essential tools to critically evaluate efficacy, safety, clinical effectiveness, and application.

Statement of Educational Need

The treatment of Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia (WM) patients should be highly personalized, and the patient’s clinical presentation, comorbidities, genomic profile, and preferences, as well as toxicity of the treatment regimens, should be taken into account. Considering the continued evolution of therapeutic modalities and management strategies for WM and the information burden placed on busy community healthcare professionals who may have little to no experience with WM, expert guidance and interpretation of the clinical significance of emerging clinical data would benefit those caring for patients with WM, allowing for ease of assessment and incorporation into clinical practice.

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Utilize testing for prognostic and predictive markers to stratify risk and optimize treatment selection for patients with CLL
  2. Employ the latest evidence and available guidelines to select among available therapeutic options in the first-line setting or for relapsed/refractory disease, including considerations for optimal sequencing of therapies
  3. Describe the clinical data regarding efficacy and safety of emerging therapies and approaches for the treatment of patients with CLL
  4. Outline acute and long-term safety considerations and factors influencing adherence to CLL treatment and evidence-based strategies to manage these considerations

Activity Description

This education activity is designed to provide the healthcare team with the latest developments and critical insights into treating their patients with CLL. This education will support the healthcare professional in his/her practice setting with the essential tools to critically evaluate efficacy, safety, clinical effectiveness, and application.

Statement of Educational Need

With the recent advances in targeted therapies for CLL, the use of approved and investigational agents is anticipated to expand over the coming years. The introduction of new agents and combinations into the clinic have provided additional effective treatment options but have also created uncertainty over differences in patients who may benefit, efficacy of available and emerging agents, optimal sequencing and combinations, and safety among the available agents. To provide optimal patient care, clinicians must be prepared with a comprehensive understanding of the clinical utility of agents that could significantly impact outcomes for patients with CLL.

Target Audience

This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of community oncologists, hematology/oncologists, oncology nurses and NPs, pharmacists and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Learning Objectives

After completing this program, participants should be able to:

  1. Utilize testing for prognostic and predictive markers to stratify risk and optimize treatment selection for patients with CLL
  2. Employ the latest evidence and available guidelines to select among available therapeutic options in the first-line setting or for relapsed/refractory disease, including considerations for optimal sequencing of therapies
  3. Describe the clinical data regarding efficacy and safety of emerging therapies and approaches for the treatment of patients with CLL
  4. Outline acute and long-term safety considerations and factors influencing adherence to CLL treatment and evidence-based strategies to manage these considerations

Activity Description

This education activity is designed to provide the healthcare team with the latest developments and critical insights into treating their patients with CLL. This education will support the healthcare professional in his/her practice setting with the essential tools to critically evaluate efficacy, safety, clinical effectiveness, and application.

Statement of Educational Need

With the recent advances in targeted therapies for CLL, the use of approved and investigational agents is anticipated to expand over the coming years. The introduction of new agents and combinations into the clinic have provided additional effective treatment options but have also created uncertainty over differences in patients who may benefit, efficacy of available and emerging agents, optimal sequencing and combinations, and safety among the available agents. To provide optimal patient care, clinicians must be prepared with a comprehensive understanding of the clinical utility of agents that could significantly impact outcomes for patients with CLL.

Target Audience

The intended audience for the activity is oncologists, pathologists, oncology nurse practitioners, oncology physician assistants, and other health care professionals involved in the management of patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).

Learning Objectives

Upon successful completion of the activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review the role of trophoblast cell surface antigen 2 (TROP2) in tumor biology as well as its implications as a cancer biomarker.
  • Describe how novel antibody drug conjugates exploit TROP2 as an anticancer therapy.
  • Examine current unmet needs for patients with NSCLC without actionable mutations.
  • Assess the latest clinical safety and efficacy regarding new and emerging TROP2 antibody drug conjugates for the management of patients with NSCLC who have progressed on prior treatment.

Activity Description

For patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who do not have actionable genomic alterations, programmed death ligand 1 immunotherapy, with or without platinum-based chemotherapy, is the standard of care. These regimens have demonstrated clear clinical benefit, yet 40% to 60% of patients do not respond to these initial therapies, or eventually experience disease progression. Options are limited for these patients, but novel therapies, such as antibody drug conjugates that target trophoblast cell surface antigen 2 (TROP2), are currently under clinical investigation. TROP2 is expressed in approximately 70% of NSCLC tumors, and expression has been associated with poor outcomes. In this continuing medical education activity, experts in the field will review current unmet needs for patients with NSCLC without actionable mutations, discuss the role of TROP2 in tumor biology and its implications as a cancer biomarker, and assess the most recent clinical safety and efficacy data regarding new and emerging TROP2 antibody drug conjugates for the management of patients with NSCLC who have progressed on prior therapies.
