Goal Statement
The goal of this activity is to improve and accelerate the awareness, understanding, and integration of current best practices in the treatment of AML.

Target Audience
This program is intended for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, and other healthcare providers who treat and manage 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
  • Develop personalized treatment plans for patients with newly diagnosed or relapsed/refractory AML with FLT3 or IDH1/2 mutations
  • Plan evidence-based therapeutic strategies using novel targeted agents or formulations and refinements of conventional chemotherapy
  • 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
