Answer

Because of the limited number of patients with Hodgkin lymphoma and the importance of the clinical questions that remain about optimal disease management, patient involvement in clinical trials is strongly encouraged. It is also recommended that clinicians seek the following consultations in cases of Hodgkin lymphoma:

  • Hematologist/oncologist
  • Radiation oncologist
  • Social worker
  • Tertiary care center for consideration of clinical trial enrollment
