This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologist-oncologists, medical oncologists, and other health care providers involved in the care of patients with MM.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to (1) interpret cytogenetic, molecular, and other standard staging tests used to define risk and prognosis for patients with myeloma precursor conditions and MM; (2) distinguish between the indicated uses and mechanisms of action of current and emerging treatment regimens; (3) evaluate emerging data regarding the approach to MRD testing; (4) develop individualized management plans for MM patients based on risk and cytogenetic and genomic data.
