This content was current as of the date it was released. In science and medicine, information is constantly changing and may become out-of-date as new data emerge.
The CLL Society worked with Clinical Care Options or CCO whose mission is “to improve clinical care and patient health outcomes through the delivery of clinically relevant, evidence-based educational activities that advance interprofessional practice” to develop this basic CLL treatment decision tool that provides you with treatment options to discuss with your medical team. While not meant to substitute for the opinion of a live CLL expert who knows you and your medical history, it does give you the algorithmic opinions from 5 different CLL experts that can inform your approach as to what therapies to review with those directly managing your CLL. There is also a downloadable checklist and other useful educational material.
A different option for getting more information on your treatment is our free live online second opinion from a CLL expert provided through our Expert Access Program. Interestingly, CCO uses some of the same CLL specialists for their expertise that we use for second opinion, so you know you are getting quality.
As we always say: Smart Patients Get Smart Care™
The CLL Society is always looking for innovative ways to better serve our patient and caregiver community by partnering with other organizations including those who are more healthcare provider facing such as Clinical Care Options. We welcome your feedback on this tool by sending us an email at support@CLLSociety.org. Please put Decision Tool in the subject line.
We are all in this together
