Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge, confidence, and performance of learners to integrate recent findings into the treatment of patients with AML.

Target Audience 
This program is intended for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare providers who care for patients with AML.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate the clinical data on prognostic or predictive molecular features or aberrations in AML and describe their clinical importance in terms of diagnosis, risk prediction, assessment of measurable residual disease, and therapeutic decisions
  • Plan evidence-based therapeutic strategies for older unfit patients, those with preexisting comorbidities, and/or those with secondary AML using novel targeted agents or formulations and refinements of conventional chemotherapy
  • Select optimal maintenance treatment following induction therapy for patients who are not candidates for, or who choose not to proceed to, hematopoietic stem cell transplantation
  • Develop personalized treatment plans for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory AML with FLT3 or IDH1/2 mutations or positive for CD33
  • Assess the available evidence to optimally integrateimmunotherapeutic agents, including monoclonal antibody–based therapy, immune checkpoint inhibitors, vaccines, and adoptive cell–based therapy
  • Address patient-specific challenges surrounding pre- and posttransplant processes and novel agents to mitigate risk
  • Manage treatment-related toxicities associated with novel therapeutics
