CME Information

Description

This is a certified continuing medical education (CME) activity that focuses on the biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin lymphoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The format of the meeting includes a combination of expert presentations, interactive case discussions, poster and abstract presentations, and an opportunity for question-and-answer debates. Additionally, the entire conference will be certified for nursing continuing education credits.

The goal of this educational activity is to facilitate a forum for physicians, nurses, researchers, and other healthcare professionals to discuss biologic, diagnostic, and therapeutic aspects of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. IUCLS will gather both domestic and international clinicians and researchers specializing in the treatment of patients with lymphoma. This event gives opportunities for providers to explore vital information on clinical updates and research in order to ensure they are using the latest treatment options in their practice.

Target Audience

The symposium has been designed for medical hematologists/oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, surgical oncologists, fellows-in-training, oncology nurses, and allied health professionals committed to the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate the latest treatment strategies for patients with indolent and aggressive forms of B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma, such as follicular lymphoma, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and mantle cell lymphoma;
  • Assess the safety and efficacy of current and emerging therapeutic approaches for the care of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma;
  • Compare and contrast the various patient and disease-related factors that may impact therapeutic decisions for patients with newly diagnosed and previously treated CLL;
  • Discuss approaches to the care of patients with rare lymphoma subtypes, including Burkitt lymphoma and peripheral T-cell lymphoma;
  • Develop strategies to communicate with and utilize the entire multidisciplinary team during the continuum of care of patients with lymphoma.
