Advances in Biomarkers and Anti BCMA Therapeutics to Improve Outcomes in Patients with Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma

Program Overview

This CME/CE program will highlight recent advances in the treatment and management of patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). The expert faculty, led by C. Ola Landgren, MD, will first discuss best practices for integrating BCMA-targeted therapy into treatment plans for patients with RRMM. Following, emerging therapies in relapsed and remitting multiple myeloma will be reviewed, analyzing both current options and future directions. The faculty will conclude with an overview of symptom management, supportive care, and quality of life in patients with multiple myeloma receiving newer therapies. Upon completion of this activity, learners will be better equipped to provide effective, comprehensive care for patients with RRMM.
