Since multiple myeloma is a manageable but not curable disease, there is always the possibility of relapse occurring. As a result, it is critical for healthcare providers to remain up-to-date on the best practices for multiple myeloma management.
The main goals of the 2019 Multiple Myeloma Day conference are to:
- Enhance the management of relapsed myeloma through multiple lines of therapy
- Introduce the concept of immunotherapies in the treatment of myeloma
- Improve the understanding of the diagnosis and treatment of MGRS
Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session, allowing for an interactive experience. Attendees will also be able to participate in small group case-based sessions on various topics, including relapsed/refractory myeloma, myeloma drug toxicity, and transplant management for the community.
Multiple Myeloma Day will take place on May 24, 2019 at the Vaughan Estate, The Estates of Sunnybrook. Community health practitioners, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, trainees, and other health care providers who are involved in the care of patients with plasma cell disorders are encouraged to attend.
