i3 Health's study focusing on the effectiveness of an online continuing medical education (CME)/nursing continuing professional development (NCPD)–approved activity to improve clinicians' knowledge of therapeutic advances in T-cell lymphoma (TCL) has been published as a 63rd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting & Exposition online abstract.
The abstract, authored by Elizabeth J. Heller, PhD; Sarah L. Williams, MAT; and Keira P. Smith, of i3 Health, and Steven M. Horwitz, MD, medical oncologist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC), highlighted significant improvements in knowledge of TCL management that occurred during the CME/NCPD-approved activity, which was presented as a live webinar series and made accessible as an enduring webinar archive in March 2021. In order to measure educational effectiveness, learners were given a repeated pairs pre- and post-activity assessment prior to the activity and following its completion.
At the conclusion of the activity, learners demonstrated significant gains in knowledge and competence regarding the efficacy and safety profiles of novel therapies, strategies to manage adverse events, and predictive and prognostic markers used to develop personalized care plans for patients with TCL.
"The results of this study demonstrate that online, case-based education is conducive to statistically significant increases in health care providers' understanding of novel treatments, toxicity management, and personalized care plans for their patients with TCL," commented Steven M. Horwitz, MD, the abstract's senior author.
As an accredited provider, i3 Health is pleased to offer ODACon 2022, a conference focusing on rare hematological malignancies, and upcoming webinars on newly diagnosed multiple myeloma and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma, all of which will feature noted ASH updates.
