General Information

Activity Description
Interactive workshop focused on topical areas of research and practice in cutaneous lymphoma. The aim of the workshop is to review the current state and to pave the road to the new developments in the basic, translational and clinical research in cutaneous lymphomas and other lymphoproliferative disorders.

Our topic this year is: Assessing and Improving Quality of Life for Patients with Cutaneous Lymphoma

Health-related quality of life (HRQL) is a multidomain concept representing the patient's general perception of the effect of illness and treatment on physical, psychological, and social aspects of life. This workshop will help participants distinguish various ways to assess HRQL in patients with cutaneous lymphoma and more adeptly improve the effects of illness and treatments on their quality of life. As in 2017, the USCLC workshop we will use audience response devices to engage the physicians.

Learning Objectives
  1. Define health-related quality of life and its dimensions.
  2. Compare and contrast health-related quality of life instruments and their applications.
  3. Devise new treatment strategies to manage skin-related and systemic symptoms in patients with cutaneous lymphoma.
  4. Formulate new approaches to address psychosocial issues in patients with cutaneous lymphoma.
Target Audience
Dermatologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, transplantation specialists, and other clinicians who are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with the cutaneous manifestations of cutaneous T-cell lymphoma.
