CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Review recent therapeutic advances and related FDA authorizations for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory mantle cell lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and peripheral T-cell lymphoma, and use this information to enhance decision-making for patients.
    • Appraise brentuximab vedotin as a component of first-line therapy for newly diagnosed classical HL, and assess the current and future effects on routine clinical practice.
    • Compare and contrast the mechanisms of action, efficacy and safety of approved and investigational chimeric antigen receptor-directed T-cell therapies to determine the current and/or potential utility of each in the management of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, mantle cell lymphoma and other lymphomas.
    • Appreciate the FDA approval of brentuximab vedotin in combination with cyclophosphamide, doxorubicin and prednisone for previously untreated CD30-positive peripheral T-cell lymphoma, and counsel patients about the associated risks and benefits.
    • Assess the ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel investigational approaches for HL and non-Hodgkin lymphoma, and obtain consent from appropriate patients for study participation.
