CME

Program Overview
Using an interactive, case-based approach, this live expert-led program will focus on the dramatic and rapid changes in AML treatment, including state-of-the-art testing and therapeutics for newly diagnosed AML, advances in antibody–drug conjugates, treatment options for FLT3- or IDH-mutant AML, and exploration of novel AML agents in clinical trial.

Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve the competence and performance of the multidisciplinary care team in applying the latest practice-changing developments to the clinical care of patients with acute myeloid leukemia.

Target Audience
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare providers who care for patients with acute myeloid leukemia

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, and therapeutic decisions
  • Assess the available evidence to optimally integrate antibody–drug conjugates and other antibody-based therapies in AML
  • Plan evidence-based therapeutic strategies using novel 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
  • Manage treatment-related toxicities associated with novel therapeutics
  • Identify patients with AML who may benefit from enrollment on clinical trials evaluating next-generation cytotoxics, epigenetic treatments, immunotherapies, and targeted agents
