17th Annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies®: Focus on Leukemias, Lymphomas and Myeloma
The 17th Annual International Congress on Hematologic Malignancies®: Focus on Leukemias, Lymphomas, and Myeloma
will provide a unique opportunity for medical oncologists, hematologists, and other health care professionals to learn from and to interact with international leaders in the field of hematologic malignancies in order to increase knowledge, apply new data to practice, and improve patient outcomes.
This CME activity is directed toward medical oncologists and hematologists interested in the treatment of patients with hematologic malignancies. Fellows, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists, researchers, and other health care professionals interested in the treatment of hematologic malignancies are also invited to participate.
At the conclusion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:
Evaluate emerging clinical data regarding new agents and evolving strategies for the treatment of hematologic malignancies, and apply clinical trial data appropriately in order to optimize the outcome of individual patients
Integrate genomic and molecular biomarkers when appropriate into risk assessment and treatment selection for patients with hematologic malignancies
Compare efficacy and safety data supporting treatment options for lymphoma (including indolent and aggressive B cell lymphomas, Hodgkin lymphoma, and T cell lymphomas) in order to optimize outcomes for individual patients
Individualize therapy for patient with newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma based on assessment of transplant eligibility, patient and tumor characteristics, and risk/benefit profiles of available regimens
Discuss strategies for the first-line treatment of chronic-phase chronic myeloid leukemia, as well as monitoring guidelines and options for patients in accelerated- or blast-phase
Evaluate the efficacy and safety of standard and emerging treatment approaches for patients with acute leukemias, myelodysplastic syndrome, and myeloproliferative disorders in order to personalize therapy for individual patients.
Review recent advances in treatment options for chronic lymphocytic leukemia, including the use of prognostic factors, to optimize outcomes.
