Collaborative Strategies for the Interprofessional Team: Advancing Clinical Outcomes in CLL Using Novel Agents

May 24, 2023

Target Audience

This educational initiative is targeted to hematologists/oncologists, oncology specialists, pharmacists, nurse practitioners, nurses, and other members of the oncology care team who treat patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

Learning Objectives

  • Examine relevant prognostic factors in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) and assess the importance of molecular testing to guide clinical decision making and treatment selection.
  • 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 interprofessional 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.
