Activity Description

CAR T-cell therapy is a major advance in the treatment of individuals with non-Hodgkin lymphoma, especially for adult patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma. Several CAR-T therapies are now approved for second-line treatment, and data regarding their efficacy, safety, and real-world outcomes continue to emerge. Collaboration among hematologic oncology clinicians is needed to ensure that appropriate patients are referred for evaluation for CAR-T therapy earlier in their treatment journey, potentially offering them a better chance for lasting remission or even a cure.

During Supporting Our Colleagues: Easing the Burden of Referrals for CAR-T in Aggressive B-cell Lymphomas, expert cell therapists and a community oncologist, along with several special guests, will highlight the clinical implications of the most recent data on CAR-T therapy, explore referring clinicians’ misperceptions about access to and logistics associated with therapy, and provide practical tips to help cell therapists collaborate more effectively with referring colleagues to optimize shared care. The interactive breakfast symposium, brought to you by Medical Learning Institute, Inc. and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, will be certified for 1.5 CME credits/EACCME reciprocal credits/contact hours for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, and pharmacists and will offer American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification points. Don’t miss this exciting breakfast symposium—REGISTER TODAY to reserve your spot!
