Virtual Tumor Board®: Diagnosis and Management of Polycythemia Vera and Myelofibrosis

Release Date: February 28, 2019
Expiration Date: February 28, 2020
Media: Internet - based

Activity Overview

We are pleased to present this CME-certified activity, a PER® Live Virtual Tumor Board®: Advancing Polycythemia Vera and Myelofibrosis Enduring CME Activity. This activity is an enduring version of the live Virtual Tumor Board® originally presented by PER® at on February 21, 2019, at 8:00 PM EST.

This program explores current trends in the prognostic scoring, molecular diagnostic studies, and appropriate guideline-based management of myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs), as well as current and emerging therapeutic strategies across MPNs. By applying evidence in real-world case scenarios, this program contextualizes that evidence to ensure that practitioners are up-to-date with recent developments in molecular diagnostics, the effect of diagnostic techniques on therapeutic decision-making, current clinical trial findings, evolving treatment paradigms, and the mechanistic rationale for novel therapeutic approaches in the context of MPN pathophysiology.
