Podium to Practice is an accredited continuing education activity featuring two renowned experts who are actively engaged in clinical trials and the management of patients with B-cell malignancies.

Target Audience
This target audience for this activity is community and academic medical oncologists, hematologists, advanced practitioners (NP/PA/PharmD), and other clinicians who treat patients with B-cell malignancies.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this activity, learners should be better able to:

  • Assess how recently presented data will impact the future care of patients with aggressive lymphoma subtypes, including Diffuse Large B-cell Lymphoma (DLBCL), Mantle Cell Lymphoma (MCL), and Hodgkin's Lymphoma (HL) 
  • Evaluate the clinical trial results of current and emerging approaches to the treatment of patients with indolent lymphoma subtypes, including Follicular Lymphoma (FL) and Marginal Zone Lymphoma (MZL) 
  • Compare recent data of therapies for patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) 
  • Determine how various patient- and disease-related factors impact selection of therapy and sequencing of agents 
  • Develop strategies to integrate novel agents and regimens into practice as they become available in order to improve patient outcomes
