Live CME/MOC-accredited webinar

Topics to Be Discussed

  • MODULE 1: Structural and pharmacologic similarities and differences among Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors
  • MODULE 2: Spectrum, incidence, and severity of hematologic and nonhematologic toxicities
  • MODULE 3: Guideline and expert recommendations for the management of hematologic and nonhematologic BTK inhibitor side effects
  • MODULE 4: Tolerability observed with BTK inhibitors in combination with other systemic anticancer therapies

Target Audience
This activity is intended for medical and radiation oncologists, nurses, hematologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other allied healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of cancer with BTK inhibitors.

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to

  • Assess the pharmacologic, pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic similarities and differences among the approved Bruton tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitors to better understand the activity and toxicities associated with these agents.
  • Appreciate the frequency and severity of various therapy-related cardiologic adverse events (AEs) commonly encountered by patients undergoing treatment with BTK inhibitors for chronic lymphocytic leukemia or mantle cell lymphoma, and develop strategies to optimally care for individuals experiencing these complications.
  • Understand the pathophysiology of hematologic AEs associated with BTK inhibitors, and use this knowledge to identify, manage and mitigate these side effects.
  • Recall commonly encountered nonhematologic AEs associated with BTK inhibitors, and appropriately intervene for patients when toxicities are suspected or diagnosed.
  • Compare and contrast the side-effect and toxicity profiles of the various FDA-approved BTK inhibitors, and recall the patient- and disease-specific factors affecting the decision to commence treatment with one versus the others.

CE Credit
CME and ABIM MOC credit form links will be emailed to each participant within 5 business days of the activity.
