Archived Monthly Oncology Tumor Boards: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Individualized Patient Care - Multiple Myeloma

Join Prashant Kapoor, MD and Shaji Kumar, MD from Mayo Clinic Cancer Center as they present their expertise on a range of cases pertaining to multiple myeloma.

Many factors need to be considered when determining the optimal multiple myeloma (MM) treatment: age, prognostic factors, comorbidities, toxicity profiles, response to prior therapy and previous relapses. Moreover, a variety of available supportive care measures targeting adverse symptoms related to MM or MM therapy have to be tailored to a specific patient. Therefore, the key in maximizing positive treatment and supportive care outcomes for patients with MM lies in careful choice of individualized treatment regimens along with early recognition and management of treatment or MM-associated adverse events. It is critical that health care providers are up-to-date with the most current evidence-based recommendations to be able to make best practice decisions in this complex environment.

The ACCME/ANCC/ACPE defines “conflict of interest” as when an individual has an opportunity to affect CE content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.

ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CE activity. ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC have not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant. Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME, ACPE, and ANCC defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.

All faculty for this continuing education activity are competent in the subject matter and qualified by experience, training, and/or preparation to the tasks and methods of delivery.
