CE Disclosures and Faculty Information

  • TARGET AUDIENCE
    This activity is intended for medical oncologists, hematology-oncology fellows and other healthcare providers involved in the treatment of multiple myeloma.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    • Consider the degree to which older patients with multiple myeloma (MM) may be underrepresented in randomized clinical trials, and appreciate the value that examination of real-world evidence may have in treatment planning for this unique population.
    • Customize the selection of first-line therapy for older patients with newly diagnosed MM, considering patient- and disease-related factors, including performance status, comorbidities and cytogenetic risk.
    • Examine clinical trial data and real-world evidence informing the front-line use of various antimyeloma therapies for patients with MM who are not eligible for stem cell transplant, and effectively identify when and how each of these strategies should be integrated into clinical management.
    • Recognize the unique risks and practical considerations associated with long-term maintenance therapy for older patients with MM, and contemplate the potential advantages of an oral proteasome inhibitor in this setting.
    • Appraise published research and other clinical factors in the best-practice selection and sequencing of established regimens and recently FDA-approved novel therapies in the care of older patients with relapsed/refractory MM.
    • Recall the design of clinical trials seeking to enroll older patients with MM in order to counsel appropriate individuals about availability and participation, and recall ongoing efforts to assemble real-world data with those who may not be candidates for protocol treatment.
