CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This program is intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of hematologic cancers.


    • Recognize the mechanisms of action, efficacy and safety of approved and investigational agents for the treatment of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) to determine the current and potential utility of each in clinical practice.
    • Understand the mechanism of action of tafasitamab, and appreciate available research data with this novel anti-CD19 antibody in combination with lenalidomide for patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) DLBCL.
    • Consider patient age, performance status and other clinical and biologic factors in the up-front and subsequent treatment of mantle cell lymphoma (MCL).
    • Describe the biologic rationale for, available data with and current clinical role of Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibition for patients with R/R MCL, and discern how these agents can be appropriately and safely integrated into routine practice.
    • Evaluate recent data with brexucabtagene autoleucel for R/R MCL, and develop an understanding of how this novel therapy can be employed in patient care.
    • Consider clinical, biologic and patient-related factors in the selection of first-line therapy for individuals with newly diagnosed classical Hodgkin lymphoma (HL).
    • Develop a long-term care plan for patients with R/R HL, considering prior exposure to systemic therapy, eligibility for transplant, symptomatology, performance status and personal goals for treatment.
    • Assess the ongoing clinical trials evaluating other novel investigational approaches for HL, MCL and DLBCL, and obtain consent from appropriate patients for study participation.
