CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of hematologic cancers.

    By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this CNE (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 hematologic cancers.


    • Develop an understanding of the biologic rationale for the development of chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy as a targeted strategy to eliminate cancer cells, and appreciate the similarities and differences between commercially available and investigational products.
    • Appraise existing and emerging efficacy data from clinical trials of approved and investigational CAR T-cell therapies directed at CD19 for relapsed/refractory B-cell lymphomas, and use this information to identify patients who may be candidates for this approach.
    • Understand how CAR T-cell therapies have been evaluated for acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and consider how approved platforms may be appropriately integrated into patient care.
    • Appreciate available data documenting the activity of CAR T-cell therapy directed against B-cell maturation antigen, and apply this knowledge to identify patients with multiple myeloma who may be appropriate for this approach as part of a clinical trial.
    • Recognize common adverse events associated with approved and investigational CAR T-cell therapies, and implement strategies to educate patients eligible for this treatment about the potential for these complications.

To review certification qualifications please visit ResearchToPractice.com/ONSCART2020/Presentations/ILNA.

    ONCC review is only for designating content to be used for ILNA points and is not for NCPD accreditation. NCPD programs must be formally approved for contact hours by an acceptable accreditor/approver of nursing CE to be used for recertification by ONCC. If the NCPD provider fails to obtain formal approval to award contact hours by an acceptable accrediting/approval body, no information related to ONCC recertification or ILNA categories may be used in relation to the program.
