About the Program
The Lymphoma Research Foundation's (LRF) Caring for the Lymphoma Patient: Nursing Education on Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma
continuing education program, as part of LRF's nurse education initiative, provides an opportunity for nurses to learn about recent updates on the treatment of lymphoma and the management of the disease. The goals of the program are to increase the knowledge, skills and performance of nurses and to maximize the quality of care for lymphoma patients.

- Evaluate emerging therapies used to treat T-cell lymphomas and B-cell lymphomas.
- Manage patient toxicity from adverse events to improve patient quality of life.
