  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionOpportunistic infections are infections that occur more often or are more severe in individuals with weakened immune systems than in people with healthy immune systems. Immunocompromised individuals are at high risk for developing opportunistic infections that can potentially be fatal. This session will discuss causes for immunosuppression and the variety of opportunistic infections—including bacterial, viral and fungal—that immunocompromised individuals can develop.Provided byThis activity is provided by OptumHealth Education.
Increasing Kidneys for Transplantation: Decreasing Discards
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionApproximately 12 people die each day waiting for a kidney transplant while about 10 kidneys are discarded daily. A recent report that focused on decreasing the number of discarded kidneys provides the first systematic nationwide approach to reducing kidney discards. The “Report of National Kidney Foundation Consensus Conference to Decrease Kidney Discards” is the result of a year-long effort with leading transplantation experts in the United States devoted to solving the kidney utilization problem.
Blood/Marrow Transplant for Autoimmune Disease
  • Transplantation
  • Disease Management
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionAutoimmune diseases are caused by an overactive immune system that targets the patient’s own cells. Most individuals with autoimmune disorders respond to conventional drug therapies; however, conventional drug therapies are not curative. Although not all autoimmune diseases can be treated with a blood/marrow transplant (BMT), the primary concept underlying use of a BMT for these diseases is that ablating and “resetting” the immune system can alter the disease process.
Pediatric Blood/Marrow Transplant Overview
  • Transplantation
  • Pediatrics
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionA blood/marrow transplant (BMT) is a treatment for children with certain types of cancer or other diseases. The goal of BMT is to treat or cure disease, which can include various types of pediatric cancers, disorders of the blood and immune system, and a wide variety of other rare disorders and syndromes. This session will highlight the different sources for blood/marrow transplants and discuss the indications, risks, benefits, and outcomes.Provided byThis activity is provided by OptumHealth Education.
Updates on Heart Failure Management
  • Transplantation

  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionInnovations in Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs) for End-stage Heart Failure
Normothermic Liver Preservation: Current Status and Future Directions
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionLiver transplantation is severely limited by the shortage of donor organs and, in addition, many potential donor organs cannot be used because suboptimal livers do not tolerate conventional cold storage. Normothermic machine perfusion (NMP) is an emerging technology that has the potential to transform liver preservation and the field of transplantation. This presentation will discuss the role of NMP as a tool to assess graft viability and its potential impact on liver transplant waiting list mortality.
Psychosocial Evaluation of Adult Cardiothoracic Transplant Candidates and Candidates for Long-term Mechanical Circulatory Support
  • Transplantation
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionThe psychosocial evaluation is well-recognized as an important component of the multifaceted assessment process to determine candidacy for cardiothoracic transplantation and long-term mechanical circulatory support. Due to the lack of a consensus-based set of recommendations for psychosocial assessment during the evaluation, a committee composed of international experts representing the International Society for Heart and Lung Transplantation (ISHLT) and collaborating societies was formed.
Acute Myelogenous Leukemia: New Therapies after 40 Years!
  • Transplantation
  • Disease Management
  • Oncology
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionAML is one of the most aggressive cancers. While other cancers have benefited from new treatments, there has been no encouraging news for most leukemia patients for the past 40 years. With improved biologic understanding of AML and the incorporation of genetic prognostic markers and novel therapeutic options bringing new advancements to the field, individuals with AML have reason to hope. This session will review recent advances and new agents that have been approved for the treatment of AML and discuss the role of biomarkers in AML treatment decisions.
Non-HLA Barriers to Blood/Marrow Transplant

  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - Ethics
$0.00 Activity descriptionHistorically, the lack of finding a human leukocyte antigens (HLA)-match has been perceived as the largest barrier to blood/marrow transplantation (BMT). Many barriers besides a lack of suitably matched donors exist and can have an adverse impact on access and outcomes of BMT. This session will identify key barriers to BMT including barriers that prevent access to care, such as language and cultural differences; illiteracy; and environmental, geographic, genetic, and medical barriers.
CAR T-cell Therapy: A Personalized Immunotherapy Approach to Cancer
  • Disease Management
  • Oncology
  • ACPE - Pharmacist
  • ACPE - Pharmacy Technician
  • AMA
  • ANCC
  • Attendance
  • CCMC - General
$0.00 Activity descriptionWhile chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy has proven successful in treating certain cancers, severe toxicities have limited its widespread application. This new cancer treatment approach is powerful and does come with serious risks that need to be considered before starting therapy. This session will identify the indications for CAR T-cell therapy and describe the challenges from the toxicities that are unique to CAR T cells. Toxicity management will also be discussed.
