2019 BCOP Self-Study Modules – Release II
Module 5: Chronic Graft-versus-Host Disease - 2.5 hours
Description: Chronic graft-versus-host disease (cGVHD) is a major complication following allogeneic hematopoeitic stem cell transplantation which can significantly impact patients' quality of life. Systemic corticosteroids are considered first-line therapy but often associated with inadequate response and a host of side-effects. Evidence-based, consensus guidelines are lacking in terms of the best approach to treating patients with steroid-refractory cGVHD. This self-study module aims to provide information on new approaches to treating steroid-refractory cGVHD. This module will highlight three articles outlining the only FDA approved drug for cGVHD, ibrutinib, new data on ruxolitinib and a cost-efficacy comparison of agents currently used in the management of cGVHD. Upon completion, the audience should gain a better understanding of second-line treatment options for patients experiencing cGVHD including mechanisms of action, monitoring, counseling, and side-effect management utilizing these therapies.Learning Objectives
- Review the pathophysiology of cGVHD including how it relates to novel treatment options
- Summarize the data from clinical trials on the use of ibrutinib and ongoing trials with ruxolitinib in the treatment of cGVHD
- Describe the role of ibrutinib and ruxolitinib in the treatment of steroid-refractory cGVHD
- Explain the cost-effectiveness of various therapies used in the treatment of steroid-refractory cGVHD

With the growing utilization of specialty pharmacy products, interactions between specialty pharmacies, ambulatory care clinics, hospitals, and manufacturers are becoming more common. This self-study module will review relevant articles chronicling development and implementation of specialty pharmacy programs, as well as specific articles describing specialty pharmacy experiences in malignant hematology and oncology populations.
- Analyze initial steps needed to implement a specialty pharmacy.
- Explore best practices related to patient-centered specialty pharmacy practices
- Summarize key processes related to initiation, monitoring and follow-up of oncology specialty pharmaceuticals.
