CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

    PURPOSE STATEMENT
    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 CLL.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Apply available clinical information and research data to the therapeutic and supportive care of patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
    • Appreciate the importance of clinical presentation, biomarker profile, coexisting medical conditions and psychosocial status in the selection of systemic therapy for newly diagnosed CLL.
    • Discuss available Phase III data demonstrating the superior efficacy and safety of Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibition with ibrutinib or acalabrutinib compared to standard chemoimmunotherapy as first-line therapy for patients with CLL, and use this information to discern how this strategy can be optimally integrated into nonresearch treatment.
    • Assess the FDA approval of venetoclax in combination with obinutuzumab as front-line therapy for CLL, and determine how this regimen can be appropriately integrated into current treatment decision-making.
    • Implement a plan of care to recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with recently approved and emerging systemic therapies employed in the management of CLL to support quality of life and continuation of therapy.
