EHA Endorsement of ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines on Hodgkin Lymphoma

EHA and ESMO agreed to collaborate in the production of European Guidelines for different hematological malignancies. For the second workshop in the series participants joined us for the EHA Endorsement of ESMO Clinical Practice Guidelines on Hodgkin Lymphoma.

This workshop was part of a series of six workshops, each focused on the published EHA Guidelines. Registration for the full workshop series was free and the on-demand recordings were made available on the platform. The Guidelines Workshops are designed to raise awareness about EHA producing and endorsing existing guidelines. In addition, the Workshops aimed to disseminate good practices and knowledge for diagnosis and treatment of hematologic diseases and illustrate the application of the guidelines in the real world setting.

During the workshop authors of the Guidelines presented an overview of the guidelines, reviewing diagnostic criteria and discussing treatment strategies. Patient cases were presented to illustrate the application of the guidelines in the real-world setting. The workshops were interactively-designed, allowing the audience to participate in polls and submit questions, which were discussed live during the workshop between the panel members.
