The pandemic has deeply affected the treatment patterns for patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). Join Dr. Javier Munoz for a discussion on considerations for treating patients with CLL during the pandemic--including best options and timing for treatment and any changes to the usual treatment regimen. Dr. Munoz will also explore what care may look like for patients with CLL beyond the pandemic and how to prepare for the future of care.
Speaker: Javier Munoz, MD, MS, FACP, Senior Associate Consultant, Division of Hematology and Medical Oncology, Mayo Clinic (Arizona)
Moderator: Christopher D'Andrea, PA-C, Physician Assistant, Department of Hematologic Oncology and Blood Disorders, Cleveland Clinic, Taussig Cancer Center
This webinar is part of the Returning to Practice in the Post COVID-19 Era: Resources for Treating Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia education project. Funding & support provided by AbbVie.
Ethan M. Basch, MD, MSC (Moderator)
Director, Cancer Outcomes Research Program
Dr. Ethan Basch is Physician-in-Chief of the North Carolina Cancer Hospital and Chief of Oncology at the University of North Carolina, where he is the Richard M. Goldberg Distinguished Professor in Medical Oncology and Professor of Health Policy & Management. He has devoted his career to bringing the patient voice into cancer care delivery and drug development processes. His research group established that up to half of patients’ symptomatic adverse events go undetected in clinical trials, and that patient-reported outcome questionnaires substantially improve detection. His team determined that integrating web-based patient-reported symptoms into oncology clinical practice improves clinical outcomes, including survival, and reduces health service utilization. His group created a system for the National Cancer Institute to collect patient-reported AEs during cancer trials called the ‘PRO-CTCAE.’ Dr. Basch is involved in efforts to bring PROs into comparative effectiveness research, routine care, and quality improvement. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), an Associate Editor at JAMA, and a prior member of the Board of Scientific Advisors for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Methodology Committee of the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI).
