Annual Updates from ASH 2020: Practice Changing Abstracts

February 19, 2021
Our goal is to join community-based providers and academic oncologists to reach our Healthy People 2020 target of 160.0 cancer-related deaths per 100,000 individuals or lower. In order to reach this goal, the Annual Updates from ASH 2019: Practice Changing Abstracts addresses early treatment options and medical advances that can be implemented in an effort to reduce cancer-related deaths. It will provide physicians and other healthcare professionals with information that will improve their competence and ultimately improve patient outcomes by bridging the gap between the level of care provided in the community and the care provided at an academic medical center. By providing them with important developments from the most recent ASH conference in December 2019, we want to educate and empower community-based oncologists on best practices for treating hematologic cancers and also inform them of the indicators of when a patient needs to be referred for tertiary level care.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians and other healthcare professionals dedicated to the treatment of hematologic cancers.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
 
  • Illustrate how cutting-edge data presented at the 2020 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Hematology (ASH) can apply to clinical practice, addressing best practices and guidelines;
  • State the emerging treatment strategies for patients with low-risk and high-risk myeloid malignancies;
  • Discuss the optimal patient selection, timing, and regimen for transplant;
  • Evaluate clinical trial data in the context of CAR T-cell therapy and its place in evolving hematologic malignancy treatment standards;
  • Choose the optimal treatment, sequencing, and supportive care strategies for patients with lymphoma using evidence-based guidelines;
  • Identify methods for integrating therapeutic advances into practice to improve current myeloma patient care;
  • Describe the pathogenesis, diagnostic evaluation and therapeutic modalities available for common benign hematologic diseases.
