Participants must be logged on and registered in order to view and complete the evaluation(s). Only ONE session may be claimed for each time block. If multiple concurrent sessions are claimed, or if a session is claimed that is not reflected on the paper sign in sheets, the offending participant forfeits CE credit.
 
Following successful completion of an evaluation, a report will be automatically submitted to CPE monitor using the date of birth and NABP e-Profile ID stored in your user profile. Please allow up to 48 hours for our systems to sync before credit becomes visible in your online NABP account. Participants are responsible for ensuring accuracy of credit reporting and receipt of credit in NABP. It is recommended that participants log on and review the information under "My Account" prior to completing evaluations. The NABP ePID and date of birth fields must be accurate for credit reporting to occur.

Patients with relapsed/refractory diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (R/R DLBCL) undergoing high-dose salvage chemotherapy and autologous stem-cell transplantation have dismal survival outcomes with median overall survival of 6.2 months. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy has revolutionized patients with R/R DLBCL, demonstrating high remission rates and durable responses. Two CAR T-cell products – axicabtagene ciloleucel and tisagenlecleucel – have been FDA-approved for R/R DLBCL and a third may be FDA-approved in 2019. Despite similarities among these products, there are distinct differences in their design and studied patient population that can make direct comparison between them difficult. This seminar will attempt to describe the clinical outcomes behind their FDA approval, distinguish the differences between the current CAR T-cell products in R/R DLBCL, and the management of their primary toxicities.

Direct oral anticoagulants (DOACs) have proven to be safe and effective options for treatment and prevention of thrombotic events. Patients with inherited thrombophilic disorders such as protein C or S deficiency, factor V Leiden, antithrombin deficiency, or prothrombin G20210A mutation are a unique patient population at an increased risk for such thrombotic events. However, data supporting the use of DOACs in these populations is sparse. The objective of this presentation is to evaluate current literature and guideline recommendations pertaining to the role of DOACs in treatment and prevention of thrombotic events in patients with inherited thrombophilic disorders.

Aspirin for the primary prevention of ASCVD is controversial. It has shown benefit in some populations, but not all. There has also been evidence of increased risk of bleeding in some populations. This presentation is aimed to help clinicians determine when aspirin for primary prevention could be beneficial in patients with ASCVD risk and when its use could be harmful.

This presentation will briefly review AML epidemiology, goals of treatment, and guideline recommendations for induction therapy of patients age 60 and over. Evidence will be reviewed and analyzed for non-venetoclax and venetoclax-containing treatment options for induction therapy of older adults ineligible for intensive chemotherapy. A suggested treatment algorithm will be presented based on the evidence discussed. The goal of this presentation is to present the evidence behind the use of venetoclax in AML, and describe its place in therapy.

Peripheral artery disease is associated with increased morbidity and mortality, including adverse cardiovascular events, limb ischemia, and amputation. Trials have shown that warfarin plus antiplatelet therapy is not superior to antiplatelet therapy alone. In October 2018, rivaroxaban received an FDA approval for reduction in the risk of major cardiovascular events in chronic PAD and CAD when used in combination with low-dose aspirin. This decision was based on results from the COMPASS trial. This presentation will examine the results of studies performed on the use of anticoagulation in patients with peripheral artery disease to prevent adverse cardiovascular outcomes. In addition, this seminar will address the external applicability of COMPASS.

The disease state of PKD will be covered. The overall goal for this seminar is to properly educate clinicians on the management of ADPKD and ARPKD and their major complications so that they may feel more comfortable treating this patient population.  Pathogenesis, treatment strategies, and the proper management of disease-associated complications using the most recent literature and guidelines will be discussed throughout the presentation.  Questions and small case scenarios incorporating important concepts will be used as teaching materials interspersed during the seminar.

This seminar will discuss the indications, safety, and efficacy of PAMORAs in adult and pediatric patients, as well as complications and side effects. The program will consist of a live lecture providing the audience with information on relevant literature relating to the expanding use of PAMORAS in oncology and critical care pediatric patients. The goal for the audience is to understand the mechanism of action of PAMORAs, their emerging role in therapy outside of adult oncology and palliative care patients, and to apply current adult practices to the pediatric setting.

Erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs) to manage anemia in cancer patients raises hemoglobin and reduces the use of RBCs. ESAs can be offered to patients with chemotherapy-associated anemia whose treatment is not curative in intent due to evidence of increased mortality and increased risk of cancer progression. ESAs also increase the risk of thromboembolic events. The goals for the audience are (1) Recognize the causes and presentation of cancer-associated anemia, (2) Discuss the pharmacology of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents, and (3) Distinguish the role of erythropoiesis-stimulating agents in cancer-associated anemia based on current guidelines and literature.
The overall structure of the CE activity will include background information on cancer associated anemia; background information, mechanism of action, and safety information of the ESAs; and discuss the current recommendations of the ASCO guidelines with a literature review component.

Throughout the past few years there have been additional agents approved for the reversal of direct oral anticoagulants but the data behind the reversal agents is lacking.  The currently FDA approved reversal agents include idarucizumab (Praxbind) and Andexanet alfa (Andexxa).  Managing the reversal of direct oral anticoagulants has become a controversial topic over the past few years and there is limited data available to guide providers in the treatment choices. The goal for the audience is to identify the risk factors associated with bleeding, review available agents for reversing direct oral anticoagulants, and identify the currently recommended strategies for direct oral anticoagulation reversal.

This presentation will provide an overview of the etiology, epidemiology, multi-factorial pathophysiology, and risk factors for post-operative vasoplegic syndrome.  The disease state overview will be followed by a review of current vasopressor therapy utilized in the management of post-operative vasoplegic syndrome.  This presentation will also review and analyze the available evidence for the utilization of corticosteroids, methylene blue, hydroxocobalamin, angiotensin II, and vitamin C/thiamine for post-operative vasoplegic syndrome.   
The overall goal for the audience is to understand the disease state/risk factors and pharmacologic options for post-operative vasoplegic syndrome treatment.

During the presentation, there will be a review of treatment-resistant depression as well as major depressive disorder. After reviewing these disease states we will cover the current treatment options and recommendations. Then, the conversation will move to discussing esketamine specifically and the trials that got this medication to the market and the efficacy and safety associated with the medication. The presentation will close with the presenter's recommendations for treatment and a suggested treatment algorithm. Assessment questions will be used throughout to follow with the learning objectives.
