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 lymphomas.

    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 Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas.


    • Review recent therapeutic advances and related FDA authorizations for newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory (R/R) follicular lymphoma (FL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) and Hodgkin lymphoma (HL), and use this information to enhance decision-making for patients.
    • 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 how prior therapeutic exposure and other patient and disease characteristics, including EZH2 mutation status, affect the selection and sequencing of available systemic treatments for R/R FL.
    • Appraise the similarities and differences among commercially available Bruton tyrosine kinase inhibitors, and counsel patients regarding the selection and sequencing of these agents in the management of R/R MCL.
    • Recall existing and emerging efficacy and safety data from clinical trials of approved and investigational CAR (chimeric antigen receptor) T-cell therapies directed at CD19 for R/R B-cell lymphomas, and identify patients who may be candidates for this approach.
    • Understand the FDA-approved indications for tafasitamab/lenalidomide and lisocabtagene maraleucel for patients with R/R DLBCL, and consider how these agents can be appropriately and safely incorporated into clinical practice.
    • Evaluate updated clinical trial data with brentuximab vedotin in combination with AVD (doxorubicin/vinblastine/dacarbazine) to discern how this regimen can be optimally incorporated into front-line management of advanced classical HL.
    • Educate patients about the side effects associated with FDA-approved therapies commonly used in the management of various forms of lymphoma, and provide strategies to prevent or ameliorate these toxicities.
