NCCN 2018-2019 Oncology Case Manager and Medical Director Program: Update on Management of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Despite the high rate of complete remission for patients with ALL, a majority of patients will develop relapsed or refractory disease. Recent advances expanding available therapeutic options could change the standard of care for these patients. In addition to recognizing the clinical benefits of these novel agents, awareness of the fundamental differences associated with treatment, including identification of unique adverse events and implementation of strategies to mitigate these events, should be addressed.
This program is designed to meet the educational needs of case managers, nurses in other roles (e.g., quality management and utilization review), medical directors at managed care organizations, reinsurers, TPAs, and case management and disease management companies who interact with, counsel, and refer patients with cancer to appropriate sources of care and/or make coverage decisions. Programs may also be of interest to nurses, nurse navigators/care coordinators, and physicians who work directly with patients in clinical settings as well as clinical pharmacists in managed care organizations and other settings.
Following this activity, participants should be able to:
- Review currently approved therapies for ALL treatment.
- Identify novel agents being investigated for ALL management.
- Summarize risks associated with ALL treatment and management strategies.
