CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of follicular lymphoma (FL).

    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this NCPD activity will assist oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists with the formulation of state-of-the-art clinical management strategies to facilitate optimal care of patients with FL.


    • Review recent therapeutic advances and related FDA authorizations for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory (R/R) follicular lymphoma (FL), and use this information to enhance decision-making for patients.
    • Evaluate published research data and consider the clinical and biologic factors in the selection of an induction approach for patients with newly diagnosed FL requiring active therapy.
    • Appraise the rationale for and available data documenting the utility of lenalidomide in combination with rituximab for newly diagnosed and R/R FL, and use this information to counsel patients regarding what role, if any, this regimen should play in their care.
    • Recognize the relevance of prior therapeutic exposure and other patient and disease characteristics to the selection and sequencing of available systemic treatments for patients with R/R FL.
    • Educate patients about the side effects associated with approved therapies commonly used in the management of FL, and provide preventive strategies to reduce or ameliorate these toxicities.
    • Describe available and emerging data with other investigational agents and strategies currently under evaluation for FL, and where applicable, refer eligible patients for trial participation.
