Survivorship Needs of Patients Living with Chronic Metastatic Disease
Survivors for whom metastatic cancer has become a chronic illness have complicated issues related to cancer treatment and to living with a limited life expectancy. Although research and guidelines on the specific concerns of this population are lacking, symptom-monitoring and palliative care interventions can improve quality of life and mood for these survivors. Continuing education on this topic will allow nurses to recognize the issues confronting this population and enable them to help survivors with metastatic disease to live out their remaining days with a high quality of life.

A Practical Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Anemia in Cancer Patients
The decision regarding the best treatment option for cancer patients with anemia is dependent on many factors including the presence of symptoms, etiology of anemia, chemotherapy treatment intent and patient comorbidities. While red blood cell (RBC) transfusion is best for symptomatic patients requiring an immediate boost in hemoglobin levels, consideration of erythropoiesis-stimulating agent (ESA) therapy and/or iron supplementation may be warranted for the long-term management of anemia in high-risk patients or in asymptomatic patients with comorbidities.

Debate - What is Optimal First-Line Therapy for Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia: Chemoimmunotherapy or Small Molecule Inhibitor Therapy?
The treatment landscape of first-line therapy for chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has evolved significantly in recent years. Educating the clinicians about the recent clinical advances and the benefits/risks associated with the use of chemoimmunotherapy vs. targeted therapy can help them to make informed clinical decisions and develop an individualized treatment plan.
