Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the competence and performance of learners to apply practice-changing clinical data and expert recommendations to optimize clinical outcomes for their patients with AML.

Target Audience
This program is intended for hematologists/oncologists, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with AML.

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

  • 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 patients, those with preexisting comorbidities, and/or those with secondary AML using novel targeted agents or formulations and refinements of conventional chemotherapy
  • 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 integrate immunotherapeutic agents, including monoclonal antibody–based therapy, immune checkpoint inhibitors, vaccines, and adoptive cell–based therapy
  • Manage treatment-related toxicities associated with novel therapeutics
