Goal Statement
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and competence of learners in the potential clinical applications of guideline-recommended therapy for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL).

Target Audience
This educational program is intended for oncologists, physician associates, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with CLL/SLL. 

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Select first-line therapy for treatment-naive CLL/SLL, taking into consideration available evidence, expert and guideline recommendations, toxicity profiles, prognostic variables, comorbidities, duration, and patient preference
  • Appraise intraclass differences in selectivity, binding, efficacy, and adverse event profiles of agents used to treat CLL/SLL with the similar mechanism of action
  • Plan individualized treatment approaches for relapsed/refractory CLL/SLL, based on optimal  sequencing strategies recommended in the NCCN Guidelines (e.g. assessment of response/intolerance to first-line therapy, testing for resistant mutations, and patient eligibility for therapy)
  • Evaluate emerging data for CLL/SLL across the disease spectrum, including novel combinations, non-covalent reversible BTK inhibitors, and CAR T-cell therapy
