Cases and Conversations™ in Multiple Myeloma: Nursing Considerations for Managing Relapsed/Refractory Disease

Release Date: May 25, 2021
Expiration Date: May 25, 2022

Activity Overview

Though multiple myeloma (MM) remains incurable, the last 15 years have yielded improved clinical outcomes, with response rates rising as high as 30% with monotherapy and up to 90% with combination therapies. With new treatments that offer the potential to improve progression-free survival (PFS) and overall survival (OS) for patients with MM in the relapsed/refractory setting, multidisciplinary care is a crucial element of support for patients. Oncology nurses occupy a unique position on the multidisciplinary care team; through frequent interaction with patients and caregivers, they ensure that patients benefit from new clinical advances by providing supportive measures conducive to adherence and uninterrupted treatment.

The goal of this educational activity is to provide oncology nurses with the knowledge and competence to appropriately and safely incorporate new agents and regimens for relapsed/refractory MM, thereby optimizing the management of patients throughout their disease course.
