This CME program will cover data on new therapeutic strategies for the management of patients with relapsed-refractory multiple myeloma that were presented at the European Hematology Association 2016 Annual Congress in Copenhagen, Denmark on June 9 - 12, 2016. The expert faculty of this program will discuss tumor science, including relapsed, refractory, and progressive disease. They will discuss the analysis of clinical trial data and therapy options for the treatment of patients with multiple myeloma. This program will give physicians a better understanding of when to implement data-driven, patient-specific treatment plans to improve outcomes for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematologists/oncologists, and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with multiple myeloma.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Discuss tumor science or multiple myeloma, including relapsed, refractory, and progressive disease.
- Analyze clinical trial data of emerging stand-alone and/or combination therapy options for the treatment of multiple myeloma presented at EHA 2016.
- Implement data-driven treatment regimens to optimally manage patient-specific disease and improve outcomes for patients with relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma.
