About the Chronic Leukemia Rounds

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society logoWe are pleased to announce the launch of the Chronic Leukemia Rounds (CLRounds).

The CLRounds will provide a forum to discuss and to share best practices of diagnosis and treatment issues, including new therapies, clinical trials, side-effect management, treatment adherence, and other issues related to managing patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL) or Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML).

Through interactive case study discussions, the CLRounds will provide an opportunity for healthcare providers to exchange information, network with colleagues, share best practices and learn about new therapies and advances in the management of chronic leukemias.

For additional information, questions, grievances, or assistance with special needs (physical, dietary, etc.) please contact us prior to the program, email [email protected] or call 1-866-607-4333.

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

• Describe the latest clincal data on prognostic indicators that can be used to inform a specific treatment plan for patients with CLL or CML

• Identify criteria for response assessment and molecular monitoring in the treatment of chronic leukemias

• Consider emerging clinical data on novel agents and emerging therapeutic strategies that have the potential to improve the outcomes for patients with chronic leukemia

• Address potential barriers to treatment adherence for chronic leukemias
