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 acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

    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 AML.


    • Recognize the clinical and prognostic significance of specific cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, and use this information to develop, adapt or refine diagnostic testing and management algorithms for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
    • Evaluate the importance of patient age, performance status and other biologic and disease-related factors in the selection and sequencing of therapy for various presentations of AML.
    • Recognize the recent FDA approval of venetoclax in combination with azacitidine, decitabine or low-dose cytarabine for patients with newly diagnosed AML not eligible for intensive therapy, and discern how this agent can be optimally integrated into nonresearch care algorithms.
    • Assess published research evidence with commercially available FLT3 inhibitors, and use this information to present clinical care opportunities to appropriate patients with newly diagnosed or progressive AML with FLT3 mutations.
    • Appraise published data with and current therapeutic role of available IDH1/2 inhibitors for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory AML with IDH1 or 2 mutations.
    • Review Phase III data documenting the efficacy of CC-486 (oral azacitidine) as maintenance therapy for patients with newly diagnosed AML who achieved first complete response or complete response with incomplete blood count recovery with induction chemotherapy, and identify individuals appropriate for treatment with this newly FDA-approved agent.
    • Design and implement a plan of care to prevent, recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with recently FDA-approved systemic therapies for AML to support quality of life and continuation of therapy.
