Current Challenges and New Opportunities in Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant is Course organized by i3 Health and will be held from May 31 - Dec 31, 2019. Target Audience: Hematology/oncology physicians, oncology advanced practitioners, oncology nurses, and other health care professionals involved in the treatment of patients eligible for HSCT. CreditS: 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit ™ 1.0 contact hour Description: Hematopoietic stem cell transplant is a potentially curative therapy for patients with hematologic malignancies. There are 2 primary types of HSCT: autologous, where the cells are taken from the patient, and allogeneic, where the cells come from a matched sibling donor or an unrelated donor. Advances in HSCT include the introduction of reduced-intensity conditioning regimens that allow transplant in older patients and alternative graft sources that afford a donor for nearly all patients who require a transplant. Despite these advances, studies continue to show that the use of HSCT remains suboptimal, placing many patients at increased risk for poor survival outcomes. Objectives: Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to: • Assess the susceptibility of hematologic malignancies to the graft-versus-leukemia effects of HSCT • Evaluate emerging data on conditioning and consolidation/maintenance therapies that can optimize HSCT outcomes • Apply strategies to manage transplant-related complications so that patients may achieve their goals of cancer therapy.
