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

Learning Objectives

  • Initiate treatment for appropriate patients based on an accurate diagnosis of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, smoldering MM, or active MM
  • Create individualized treatment strategies for patients with newly diagnosed MM through consideration of the available clinical data as well as risk assessment, age, comorbidities, and patient preferences
  • Select safe and effective maintenance therapy for patients with MM based on risk and response to induction therapy
  • Evaluate the efficacy and safety of combination regimens to individualize therapeutic strategies for patients with MM at first relapse
  • Plan appropriate treatment strategies using all available agents and classes to provide efficacious combination therapies to heavily pretreated patients with relapsed/refractory MM
  • Employ novel agents and clinical trial participation as part of clinical care strategies for MM
