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.

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

  • Appreciate the importance of clinical presentation, biomarker profile, coexisting medical conditions and psychosocial status in the selection of systemic therapy for patients with newly diagnosed CLL.
  • Discuss available Phase III data demonstrating the superior efficacy and safety of Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibition compared to standard chemoimmunotherapy as first-line therapy for CLL, and use this information to counsel patients regarding available front-line options.
  • Assess the FDA approval of venetoclax in combination with obinutuzumab as front-line therapy for CLL, and explain the potential risks and benefits of time-limited therapy to individuals with the disease.
  • Appraise available Phase III data documenting the comparative efficacy and tolerability of first- and second-generation BTK inhibitors and consider the implications of these findings for clinical decision making for patients with newly diagnosed or previously treated CLL.
  • Appreciate the scientific rationale for the investigation of combined BTK and Bcl-2 inhibition, and review recently presented data documenting the safety and efficacy of this strategy in patients with newly diagnosed CLL.
  • Analyze how age, performance status, prior therapeutic exposure and other biologic and disease related factors impact the selection and sequencing of therapy for patients with relapsed/refractory (R/R) CLL in order to provide education regarding appropriate treatment considerations.
  • 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.
  • Recall available and emerging data with novel agents and combination strategies currently under investigation in CLL and, where applicable, discuss clinical trial participation with eligible patients.
