Managing Adverse Events Associated with 1L Regimens for CLL and SLL
The success of novel targeted therapies and fixed dosing schedules for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) can be limited by adverse events (AEs). It has been increasingly important that oncology nurse teams have an established protocol for AE management to improve patient outcomes. Join our expert faculty in this 15-minute interactive case-based discussion on best practices to handle common AEs in CLL/SLL patients receiving first-line treatment.
This CE activity is intended for oncology nurses and NPs who provide care for individuals with CLL and SLL.
After completing this CE activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Select safe and effective fixed-duration combinations to improve patient care and outcomes
- Identify the most common and serious adverse events (AEs) that emerge during treatment with targeted therapies and combination regimens, including negative outcomes associated with mutations in black patients
- Plan strategies to mitigate treatment-emergent AEs most troublesome for patients
- Engage patients of all backgrounds and ethnicities in discussion of the risks of AEs relative to treatment outcomes
