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.
OVERVIEW OF ACTIVITY
Lymphomas are a heterogeneous group of tumors arising in the reticuloendothelial and lymphatic systems. The biologic heterogeneity among the lymphomas gives rise to marked differences with respect to epidemiology, pathologic characteristics, clinical presentation and optimal management. The two major types are Hodgkin lymphoma (HL) and non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). In the United States, an estimated 82,310 new cases of HL and NHL will be diagnosed in 2019, with 20,970 deaths attributed to these diseases. Although HL can often be cured, the prognosis for NHL depends on the specific subtype. The past several years represent a period of substantial progress in the development and evaluation of novel agents across many lymphoma subtypes. Also, mature clinical trial results have illustrated the efficacy of several new investigational therapies, a number of which have entered the clinic, thereby altering the therapeutic algorithms for HL and various NHL subtypes. The extensive list of available therapeutic options for patients with lymphoma poses a challenge to the practicing clinician who must maintain up-to-date knowledge of appropriate clinical management strategies across a vast spectrum of liquid and solid tumors.
Although many of the educational needs related to the care of patients with lymphoma are relevant specifically to the practicing medical oncologists and hematologists directly responsible for therapeutic decision-making, prospective and retrospective patient-level research has shown that oncology nurses play an integral role in the successful delivery of systemic anticancer therapy and in the preservation of the physical and psychosocial well-being of patients. These video proceedings from the second part of a 6-part integrated CNE curriculum originally held at the 2019 ONS Annual Congress feature discussions with leading HL/NHL investigators and their nursing counterparts regarding actual patient cases and recent clinical research findings affecting the optimal therapeutic and supportive care for patients with HL, follicular lymphoma (FL), mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL).
By providing information on the latest research developments in the context of expert perspectives, this CNE 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 lymphomas.
