4th Annual Live Medical Crossfire®: Hematologic Malignancies

Release Date: August 14, 2020
Expiration Date: August 14, 2021

Activity Overview

Current standards of practice in the treatment of hematologic malignancies are continually evolving as new clinical trial data emerge. Physicians who treat a broad range of patients with hematologic malignancies—leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma—need to stay informed about current controversies and changing treatment paradigmsin these tumor types across multiple lines of care to confidently personalize clinical decisions for their patients. As such, comprehensive case-based discussions that provide real-world clinical perspectives can help shape modern management of hematologic malignancies today.

This Online! Medical Crossfire®: Hematologic Malignancies program provides presentations from the 4th Annual Live Medical Crossfire®: Hematologic Malignancies, held on July 11, 2020. This unique and engaging multimedia activity is ideal for the community-based clinician and focuses on the practical aspects managing patients with hematologic malignancies. The program is designed for those who did not attend the live meeting and to help reinforce learnings for those who did.
