CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of Hodgkin lymphoma.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Consider disease- and patient-related factors, including age and comorbidities, stage and bulk of disease and International Prognostic Score, to guide the selection of first-line therapy for individuals with newly diagnosed classical Hodgkin lymphoma (HL).
    • Develop a long-term care plan for patients with relapsed/refractory HL, considering prior exposure to systemic therapy, eligibility for transplant, symptomatology, performance status and personal goals for treatment.
    • Review published research outlining the benefits and risks associated with various systemic therapies for patients at first relapse, and use this information to discern which of these may be appropriate as a bridge to referral for autologous stem cell transplant (ASCT).
    • Appreciate available data documenting the efficacy of consolidation therapy after ASCT, and use this knowledge to identify patients appropriate for this approach.
    • Compare and contrast the efficacy and safety of various immunotherapeutic approaches for the treatment of HL to determine the current utility of each in clinical practice.
    • Evaluate the biologic rationale for and published clinical research findings with anti-PD-1 antibodies combined with other systemic therapies (eg, biologic agents, chemotherapy) and assess the potential current and future role of this strategy for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory HL.
    • Recall ongoing trials investigating novel agents and strategies for the treatment of HL, and counsel appropriately selected patients about availability and participation.
