Program Overview:
Some of the highest incidence rates of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) occur in the rural states of Montana, Maine, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Kentucky, where disparities in cancer care are also known to exist. This program provides an opportunity for clinicians practicing in these rural states to participate in personalized education designed to both improve disparities in care for these patients and link quality improvement measures to the initiative for reporting to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Quality Payment Program for Small, Underserved, and Rural Practices Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Learning Objectives:
Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:
• Implement state-specific and universal strategies to address barriers to the care of patients with CLL living in rural areas, to improve healthcare quality
• Describe optimal treatment regimens for patients with CLL into practice, considering the risks and benefits of each approach
• Develop approaches to address CLL treatment adherence, adverse event monitoring and management, with unique considerations for rural practice
• Integrate quality improvement measures as outlined by the CMS Quality Payment Programs for Small, Underserved, and Rural Practices
