  • Appraise the latest trial data and practice guidelines for the use of novel, targeted agents in CLL and analyze strategies to optimize therapy selection based on clinical factors and patient preferences.
  • Explore key clinical pearls and differentiating factors between novel, targeted therapies in CLL, and discuss practical solutions and innovations to mitigate factors that may complicate the use of the most clinically appropriate therapy.
  • Appraise multidisciplinary strategies to optimize testing, treatment selection, management, and continuum of care for CLL patients and strategies to increase collaboration with the team including specialists (e.g., cardiology) and oncology clinicians of various practice settings.
