The treatment landscape in chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL) has shifted with the advent of novel targeted agents that are more tolerable than traditional chemoimmunotherapy. However, keeping up with the latest clinical evidence and updates to the clinical guidelines on these agents can be challenging for busy clinicians and their care teams. In this first episode of the 3-part educational series First-line Treatment of CLL/SLL: New Data and Practical Strategies for Practice Improvement, sit in on a conversation with our expert faculty as they discuss the new standard of care for CLL and SLL and how to apply this care transition to your patients and clinic.
