Topics to Be Discussed

  • Identification of the clinical and prognostic significance of cytogenetic and molecular defects in acute myeloid leukemia (AML)
  • Evaluation of the effects of biologic and disease-related factors on the selection and sequencing of available therapies for patients with AML
  • Recognition of the side effects and toxicities associated with existing and recently approved therapies in the management of AML

Target Audience
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses, nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists involved in the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML).

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

  • Recognize the clinical and prognostic significance of specific cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities, and use this information to develop, adapt or refine diagnostic testing and management algorithms for patients with AML.
  • Evaluate the importance of patient age, performance status and other biologic and disease-related factors in the selection and sequencing of therapy for various presentations of AML.
  • Recognize the FDA approval of venetoclax for patients with newly diagnosed AML not eligible for intensive therapy, and discern how this agent can be optimally integrated into nonresearch care algorithms for these patients.
  • Assess published research evidence with commercially available FLT3 inhibitors, and use this information to present clinical care opportunities to appropriate patients with newly diagnosed or progressive AML with FLT3 mutations.
  • Develop an understanding of the mechanism of action of, published data with and current therapeutic role of available IDH1/2 inhibitors for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory AML and IDH1 or 2 mutations.
  • Review Phase III data documenting the efficacy of CC-486 as maintenance therapy for patients with newly diagnosed AML who achieved first complete response or complete response with incomplete blood count recovery with induction chemotherapy, and identify individuals appropriate for treatment with this newly FDA-approved agent.
  • Design and implement a plan of care to prevent, recognize and manage side effects and toxicities associated with recently approved systemic therapies for AML to support quality of life and continuation of therapy.
