Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Initiate timely systemic treatment for appropriate patients based on the latest multiple myeloma diagnosis and staging criteria
  • Plan individualized treatment strategies for patients with multiple myeloma through consideration of the available clinical data as well as risk assessment, comorbidities, and patient age/fitness and preferences
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety evidence of novel combination therapeutic regimens for patients with multiple myeloma
  • Select optimal therapies for patients with heavily pretreated relapsed/refractory MM based on individual patient and disease characteristics
  • Explain the mechanism of action of newer classes of agents indicated for and under investigation for myeloma
  • Identify patients with relapsed/refractory MM who would be eligible for enrollment in late-phase clinical trials
