CE Accreditation Period: 01/16/2023 to 01/16/2025
Topic(s): Related Bone Marrow Failure Diseases and Malignancies, Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS), Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML)

A Thread To Pull: Unraveling the Complexities of Myeloid Malignancies

This complimentary CME satellite symposium that provides an in-depth and up-to-date review of research related to biology, prognosis, natural history, and therapeutic management of patients with myeloid malignancies including PNH, MDS, AML, MPN and related myeloid malignancies. The overall goal of the program is to bring together leaders in disease research and clinical practice to explore solutions to improving the care of these patient populations.

CE Accreditation Period: 06/03/2022 to 06/03/2023
Topic(s): Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS)

Program Description: Join Dr. Naval Daver and Dr. Guillermo Garcia-Manero from MD Anderson Cancer Center to discuss current treatment options and unmet needs for different patient populations with MDS. The expert panel will further explore emerging targeted and combination therapies, including rationale for use, novel mechanisms of action, and the latest clinical data. As an issue of great importance, the evidence on disparities in clinical trials will be reviewed and strategies shared to educate patients on the clinical-trial process and its benefits, while encouraging enrollment when appropriate. Patient interviews will ensure the education remains patient-focused by providing their experiences with treatment and the clinical decision-making process.
