This CME-certified online activity includes two clinical scenarios that mimic the patient encounter in the clinic. Each case includes patient histories, laboratory results, and options for the next step in treatment. At each decision point, expert faculty provide commentary and insight. The cases focus on the management and treatment of patients diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) including: front-line treatment, the role of minimal residual disease (MRD), the relapsed/refractory patient, and managing older patients. A link to and a downloadable PDF of the FACIT patient assessment tool, FACT-Leu, specifically designed for patients with leukemia is also provided.
The FACIT Measurement System is a collection of quality of life (QOL) questionnaires targeted to the management of chronic illness. The questionnaires were developed using four primary QOL domains:
- Physical Well-Being
- Social/Family Well-Being
- Emotional Well-Being
- Functional Well-Being
The questionnaires have been developed and validated for specific disease types: cancer, HIV/AIDS and Multiple Sclerosis. See www.FACIT.org for additional information.
