The proposed educational program is planned for and will be targeted to oncology NPs, PAs, and nurses who manage patients with relapsed/refractory CLL or MCL.
The goal of this program is to improve the knowledge and skills of NPs, PAs, and oncology nurses related to differentiation of BTK inhibitors, optimal use in clinical practice, and the identification and management of adverse events (AEs) in patients with CLL/SLL or MCL.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
Evaluate differences between covalent and noncovalent BTK inhibitors and the impact on their use in clinical practice
Plan BTK inhibitor‒based therapeutic strategies for patients with R/R CLL/SLL or R/R MCL, taking into consideration current evidence and guidelines and patient and disease factors
Apply recommended management strategies for AEs associated with BTK inhibitors
