Statement of Need

While follicular lymphoma (FL) can progress slowly, roughly 20% of patients will experience progression of disease within 24 months (POD24) and an overall lower survival rate than those without POD24. Risk assessment and prognostic tools, using both traditional and gene-based criteria, can help clinicians identify patients at higher risk for disease progression. Identifying high-risk patients earlier will offer health care professionals (HCPs) broader treatment strategies. Additionally, emerging tools that can be used beyond diagnosis can help optimize patient outcomes.

This first installment in a CME Outfitters’ series on follicular lymphoma will review the risk assessment techniques available to identify patients with FL who may experience POD24. Join Dr. Casulo and Dr. Leonard in part 1 of this 3 part series as they discuss risk assessment models for patients with FL.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Implement risk stratification techniques to identify patients with FL who are likely to experience POD24.

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
