Patient & Provider Connection™: Understanding the Patient Journey During the Management of Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

Release Date: March 16, 2021
Expiration Date: March 16, 2022

Activity Overview

In recent years, significant progress has been made in understanding the pathophysiology of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), including identification of new cytogenetic and molecular abnormalities and development of novel targeted agents. The addition of tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs), monoclonal antibodies, novel immune therapies including bispecific T-cell engager and chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells to the treatment landscape has resulted in improved clinical outcomes. These new developments have shifted clinical management to a more individualized treatment approach based on immunophenotypic, cytogenetic and molecular features.

This video-based activity is designed for health care professionals to explore the diagnosis and treatment of ALL through a unique perspective that puts the patient voice front and center. In addition to renowned expert, Daniel J. DeAngelo, MD, PhD, who will discuss implementation of current and emerging treatment options in the management of ALL, a pediatric ALL survivor will lend her expertise by sharing her personal journey of living with ALL. The activity focuses on steps along the continuum of care: screening, diagnosis, and referral to initiation of treatment, treatment during disease progression, management of adverse events, and shared decision-making that occurs along the way.
