Statement of Need

Follicular lymphoma (FL) is characterized by repeated remissions and relapses. Due to the older median age at diagnosis (63 years) and indolent disease course, it is not uncommon to encounter septua- and octogenarians in practice. Health care professionals (HCPs) must understand the impact of aging therapeutic decisions, while minimizing toxicity and maintaining quality of life (QoL).

This final installment in a 3-part CME Outfitters’ series on follicular lymphoma will assess the needs of older patients with FL when creating treatment plans. Join Dr. Maddocks and Dr. Leonard as they discuss the impacts of aging on treatment selection and preferred treatments for older patients with FL.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this CE activity, participants should be able to:

  • Evaluate therapy options to select the most optimal treatment for older patients with relapsed/refractory FL.

Financial Support

Supported by an educational grant from Genentech, Inc.

Target Audience

Physicians, PAs, nurse practitioners, nurses and pharmacists specializing in hematology, oncology, and/or geriatrics
