Management of Newly Diagnosed Multiple Myeloma Based on Risk Stratification
The availability of multiple primary therapy regimens and maintenance therapy options has resulted in an increased depth of responses and improved progression-free and overall survival of patients with multiple myeloma (MM). However, this has added complexity in treatment selection for these patients. A uniform treatment approach cannot be applied to all patients. Clinicians must understand the treatment evolution and guidelines for when to administer two-, three- or four- drug regimens as initial therapy in the context of the patient's therapeutic and disease history. Understanding how to individualize treatment will further improve outcomes of patients with newly diagnosed MM.
This educational program is designed to meet the educational needs of oncologists, hematologists, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other health care professionals who manage patients with hematologic malignancies.
Following this program, participants should be able to:
- Evaluate clinical data supporting the treatment options for newly diagnosed multiple myeloma (MM).
- Individualize the approach for treatment selection in patients with newly diagnosed MM.
