The COVID-19 pandemic has affected treatment planning and shared decision-making for individuals with chronic lymphocytic leukemia. In this episode, we'll discuss how patient education has become even more critical as the pandemic recedes and restrictions loosen.

Hear specific tactics to help patients better retain and ensure understanding of what is communicated during their education appointments, and effective practices to support patients with CLL through this new world of uncertainty.
