Navigating the New Normal:

CARE™ CLL Guidance 2021


26 Jan 2021

In July 2020, The CARE™ Hematology Faculty developed and published Considerations for Malignant Hematology Patient Management and Treatment During the COVID-19 Era.

Changes in the delivery of care brought on by the pandemic have happened fast, despite not necessarily being optimal for patient outcomes. These changes, as well as recent drug approvals have prompted the CARE™ Faculty to update the CARE™ CLL Treatment Guidance; first developed and distributed in 2018.

This is the 3rd iteration (V.3) of the CARE™ CLL Treatment Guidance. It aims to provide further context and guidance specifically on management of CLL as clinicians navigate the new normal in 2021.
