Doctor Discussion Guide

Prepare for discussions with your treatment team about KYMRIAH

Getting to know your treatment team

It is important to know who is on your KYMRIAH® (tisagenlecleucel) treatment team and how to get in touch with them. Your treatment team may include oncologists, hematologists, clinical nurse specialists, as well as other health care professionals such as dieticians and counselors. Remember to ask for names, telephone numbers, and email addresses – it's a good idea to share this information with your caregiver. Bring your written questions to the meeting and be prepared to record the doctor's or treatment team's answers.
