CME and Support Information
This continuing medical education activity is provided by The Medical College of Wisconsin.
This activity is supported by educational grants from Janssen Biotech, Inc., administered by Janssen Scientific Affairs, LLC; Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc.; and Takeda Oncology.

Program Overview
Multiple myeloma management has undergone profound changes in the past few decades, this is largely due to advances in understanding the disease biology and the development of new therapeutic options. However, this progress has also led to an increasingly complex treatment environment. Numerous questions remain, particularly in the transplant setting, such as the role of high-dose chemotherapy, the use of continuous/maintenance therapy, and the best treatment sequence for a patient with multiple myeloma.

In this CME activity, leading experts in multiple myeloma will review changes in the treatment paradigm, optimal patient selection for transplant, and data from recent clinical trials. They will also provide insight into new strategies for individualized management, the role of early versus late transplant, and how to incorporate novel therapies into clinical practice.

Learning Objectives
Upon successful completion of this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Review the eligibility criteria for stem cell transplant in patients with MM in both the frontline and relapse/refractory settings.
  • Apply clinical evidence for optimal induction, conditioning, and consolidation strategies in patients with MM undergoing stem cell transplant.
  • Utilize effective maintenance therapy in patients with MM who have completed stem cell transplant.

Target Audience
The intended audience for this activity is hematologists, oncologists, bone marrow transplant specialists, and other health care professionals who provide care for patients with multiple myeloma (MM).
