CLL first-line treatments

This webinar will update on CLL first treatments today and what is on the horizon: how is a therapy chosen, how is prognosis determined and what level of involvement should patients expect in their care decisions.

Lymphoma Action and Leukaemia Care are back with our next joint webinar. Join us as we chat to the experts about chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and its first-line treatments.

This webinar will update on CLL first treatments today and what is on the horizon: how is a therapy chosen, how is prognosis determined and what level of involvement should patients expect in their care decisions.

We’ll seek to explain the different types of intensive and non-intensive treatments, who can have a particular therapy, how they work, their efficacy and impact on daily living.

We will be joined by:

  • Dr George Follows, Consultant Haematologist at Cambridge University Hospitals Trust and Visiting Professor of Haematology, Anglia Ruskin Medical School Associate Lecturer, University of Cambridge
    • Dr Follow’s special interests are in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and lymphoma.
  • Helen Knight, CLL-specific CNS at Nottingham University Hospitals
    • Helen Knight is one of just a handful of CLL-specific clinical nurse specialists across the UK
