2: Evaluate the evidence supporting the addition of TKIs to standard chemotherapy for the treatment of acute lymphocytic leukemia.
3: Explain the clinical and molecular aspects of fludarabine-refractory chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).
4: Assess the benefits and risks of newer therapies for high-risk and ultra-high-risk CLL.
5: Recognize the effect of genetic mutations on the evaluation and treatment of hematologic malignancies.
