Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve learners’ knowledge of and competence in applying practice-changing clinical data and expert recommendations to optimize the care of their patients with multiple myeloma.

Target Audience
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with multiple myeloma.

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 diagnostic criteria, staging criteria, and risk factors
  • Develop individualized treatment strategies for patients with newly diagnosed multiple myeloma through consideration of the available clinical data as well as risk assessment, comorbidities, and patient age/fitness and preferences
  • Appraise 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 multiple myeloma based on individual patient and disease characteristics, as well as response to and tolerance of previous therapies
  • Identify patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma who would be eligible for enrollment on key ongoing clinical trials
  • Recognize adverse events associated with new or novel multiple myeloma treatments
