Community Practice Connections™: Transforming Outcomes in Relapsed and Refractory Multiple Myeloma with Antibody-Based Regimens: An Interactive Case-Based Discussion

Release Date: July 30, 2021
Expiration Date: July 30, 2022

Activity Overview

The treatment landscape for patients with multiple myeloma (MM) has evolved rapidly in recent years. As novel monoclonal antibody-based therapies start to be incorporated in the frontline and relapsed settings, clinicians are frequently unsure of how to appropriately combine and sequence therapies.
 
This online educational activity is designed to provide expert commentary regarding recent clinical data on the efficacy and safety of novel monoclonal antibody therapy in patients with MM and the optimal strategies to combine and sequence monoclonal antibody therapies to enhance patient outcomes. Advances in understanding the molecular mechanism of action of monoclonal antibody therapies in MM and how this contributes to the development of prognostic and predictive biomarkers for this disease are also discussed. This activity is presented in a multimedia format that includes a series of video interviews with expert thought leaders integrated into text-based elements.

Fellows, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals interested in the management of patients with multiple myeloma are also invited to participate.

Learning Objectives

Upon succesl completion of this activity, you should be better prepared to:

  • Explain the mechanisms of action and clinical profiles for monoclonal antibodies which have been applied to multiple myeloma treatment
  • Describe recent evidence from pivotal trials that have evaluated antibody-based combinations among patients with relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma
  • Apply individual patient characteristics to stratify risk and optimize decision making in relapsed/refractory myeloma settings, including information on comorbidities and previous drug exposure
  • Integrate recent clinical trial evidence on monoclonal antibodies to inform personalized treatment planning and sequencing in relapsed/refractory multiple myeloma
