Foundations CME/CE Credit available until: July 30, 2021
Applications CME/CE Credit available until: September 9, 2021
Hematologists, hematologists/oncologists, medical oncologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurses caring for patients with blood cancers.
This series of interactive webinars will provide clinicians across the care spectrum treating hematologic malignancies with a foundational understanding of genomics, current applications and advances, and practical strategies to apply these findings to treating patients.
Foundations (15-25 minutes each)
The following cover the basics of molecular profiling and testing:
- On Target: Terminology Matters: Getting on the Same Page (0.5 CE/CME)
- The Toolbox: A Look at Types of Genomic Testing (0.5 CE/CME)
- Clinical Applications: Overview of Genomic Tests & Their Use in Guiding Clinical Decisions (0.25 CE/CME)
- Patient Points: Explaining the Importance &Implications of Testing (0.5 CE/CME)
- On the Horizon: Key Areas of Research in Genomics of Hematologic Cancers (0.5 CE/CME)
Applications (approximately 30-60 minutes each)
The following are disease-specific, case based and explore relevant biomarkers, tests and therapies, patient communication strategies and emerging research:
- Adult & Pediatric Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (0.75 CE/CME)
- Adult & Pediatric Acute Myeloid Leukemia & Myelodysplastic Syndromes (0.75 CE/CME)
- Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (0.75 CE/1.0 CME)
- Myeloma (0.5 CE/CME)
- DLBCL & Aggressive T-cell Lymphomas (0.5 CE/0.75 CME)
- Hodgkin & Non-Hodgkin Lymphomas (0.5 CE/CME)
At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify genomic principles, applications, technologies and terminology relating to biomarker development
- Outline available genomic tests for diagnosis of hematologic malignancies and relevant premalignant conditions
- Interpret test results and select appropriate management strategies
- Articulate strategies to explain tests and their implications to patients and caregivers
- Discuss ongoing genomic and genetic research in hematologic malignancies and relevant premalignant conditions

The American Society of Hematology (ASH) designates the Foundations enduring activity for a maximum of 2.25 and the Applications enduring activity for a maximum of 4.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
ABIM MOC Recognition Statement: Successful completion of the Foundations CME activity, which includes participation in the evaluation component, enables the participant to earn up to 2.25 Medical Knowledge MOC points in the American Board of Internal Medicine's (ABIM) Maintenance of Certification (MOC) program. The amount of points earned for the Applications CME activity are 4.25. Participants will earn MOC points equivalent to the amount of CME credits claimed for the activity. It is the CME activity provider's responsibility to submit participant completion information to ACCME for the purpose of granting ABIM MOC credit.
Approval for nurses has been obtained by the National Office of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society under Provider Number CEP 5832 to award up to 2.25 continuing education contact hours through the California Board of Registered Nursing for the Foundations activity. Up to 3.75 continuing education contact hours will be awarded for the Applications activity.
Nurses must attend the webinars, complete at least one hour of learning, submit the online evaluation form, and complete the online post-test to earn credit. Once submitted, the certificate will be automatically generated as a PDF online. Nurses do not have to attend all 11 modules, but should complete at least the first 5 modules on the Foundations.
This activity is provided by the American Society of Hematology and The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in collaboration with The France Foundation.
This activity is supported by educational grants from Agios Pharmaceuticals, Inc; Astellas Pharma Inc.; Bristol Myers Squibb Company; Foundation Medicine, Inc.; Illumina, Inc.; Pharmacyclics LLC, an AbbVie Company and Janssen Biotech, Inc.; Servier Pharmaceuticals; and Verastem Oncology.
