Navigating the Frontier of Hematologic Malignancy Therapies. Series of 5 Modules

Program Overview

This activity will cover the latest advances in the therapeutic management of hematologic malignancies, including bispecific antibodies, CAR-T products, proteolysis-targeting chimeras, and antibody-drug conjugates — with an emphasis on novel targets and approaches. The prognostic role of circulating tumor DNA is also explored.

3.00 CE Credit(s)
Expires: March 12, 2024

Target Audience

Hematologists, oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with blood cancers.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Analyze available data on bispecific antibodies for the treatment of multiple myeloma (Module 1 CME 0.5 credit)
