S061 - Cutting Edge Multidisciplinary Care of the CTCL Patient

Monday, March 4; 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Learning Objectives

Following this course, the attendee should be able to:

  • Describe the many advantages of single site multidisciplinary care for the CTCL patient as opposed to fragmented multi-site care
  • Outline the different treatment approaches to patients with different types of CTCL, based upon scientific advances, new therapies, and advanced tools
  • Describe how understanding the basic biology of CTCL and T lymphocytes can guide decisions about therapeutic strategies


Cutaneous T cell lymphomas range from minor diseases with indolent life-long courses to aggressive life-threatening lymphomas potentially curable only by hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). Our approach to the management non-indolent CTCL involves the collaborative efforts of physician-experts and physician-scientists in CTCL. These include Dermatologic-Oncologists, Radiation-Oncologists, Medical-Oncologists, HSCT-Oncologists, Nurse Practitioners, PA's, and research nurses dedicated to cutaneous lymphomas, all practicing in the same setting. Translational research studies provide bedside-to-bench, and bench-to-bedside insights that continue to improve patient care. A robust clinical trials program expands therapeutic options for our patients. Multidisciplinary care is superior.
