Management of MF and PV for Today and Tomorrow: Navigating Novel Approaches to Improve Patient Care

Release Date: October 26, 2020
Expiration Date: October 26, 2021

Activity Overview

Patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) like myelofibrosis (MF) and polycythemia vera (PV) have historically had few treatments options that could modify the disease course to improve symptoms and overall survival. Clinicians need to remain updated on recent advances in the field so they can rapidly integrate emerging treatment options and principles into routine management.
 
This on-demand symposium is designed to provide participants with up-to-date knowledge regarding risk stratification, current management, and the potential role of emerging treatment options for MF and PV, reinforced by case scenarios discussed with the expert faculty panel. The overall goal of this program is to help participants make informed treatment decisions for patients with MPNs, while managing the treatment- and disease-related complications that arise from these malignancies.
 
This educational activity is an archive of a live virtual symposium held on October 7, 2020.
