Expiration date: 01/31/2022
Estimated time to complete: 1.5
As treatment options and strategies in multiple myeloma (MM) rapidly evolve, oncology nursing professionals will continue to be challenged to manage patients with MM according to the most recent treatment recommendations. Additionally, new agents have adverse event profiles that differ from standard chemotherapy and require new strategies for monitoring and management. Therefore, oncology nursing professionals will benefit from continuing education that assists them in keeping up to date on changes in treatment combinations and sequencing of regimens, as well as enhances their skills managing medication-related adverse effects.
This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of oncology nurses, nurse practitioners and navigators engaged in the care of patients with multiple myeloma. Other healthcare providers may also participate.
· Describe the role of new medications in the treatment of MM
· Identify adverse events and related nursing management strategies with new medications and combinations used to treat MM
· Determine supportive care needs of MM patients considering their medication regimen and co-morbidities
· Outline strategies to reduce the risk of skeletal, thrombotic, and infectious complications in MM
