1.00 / AMA PRA Category 1 CreditTM 1.00 / CE for Pharmacists
This activity is accredited by the Washington State Pharmacy Association and Horizon CME, and was planned and implemented in partnership between Horizon CME and RedMedEd.
Support for this activity has been provided through educational grants from Celgene Corporation, Pharmacyclics LLC, an AbbVie Company and Janssen Biotech, Inc., administered by Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC.
Over the last several decades, advances in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) management have improved survival; however, relapse and the emergence of treatment-resistant NHL following standard therapy remain ongoing treatment challenges. With conventional therapy for B-cell NHL, response rates are suboptimal and many patients relapse, highlighting the need for novel treatments that address the risk of disease progression. Recently, several novel therapies—including small-molecule inhibitors of the B-cell receptor pathway and next-generation monoclonal antibody therapies—have emerged or advanced in clinical trials. These agents offer the potential to dramatically improve outcomes in some treatment-resistant patients.
This activity has been developed to help advanced-practice oncology professionals stay current on the newest targeted NHL therapies and the best strategies for their effective use, particularly in the management of patients with multidrug-resistant and relapsing NHL. Additionally, this activity reviews current best practices for detecting variations in the natural history of NHL over time with the goal of improving long-term outcomes.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurse specialists, and other health care providers (HCPs) involved in the management of oncology patients.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:
Evaluate current recommendations and best practices for therapeutic management of B-cell lymphomas with respect to patient risk and the benefits and risks of available treatment regimens
Distinguish between the indicated uses, mechanisms of action, depth and duration of clinical responses, and safety of current and emerging targeted agents
Outline a treatment plan to achieve the deepest and most durable response while balancing the adverse effects and risk for toxicities in fit and unfit patients
