Activity Description

Effective treatment of multiple myeloma (MM) requires significant clinical coordination, as MM treatment plans are highly individualized.

This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of the members of the care team (oncologists, hematologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists and other health care professionals) who manage patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma.
