Virtual Independent Satellite Symposia at the ASH Meeting on Hematological Malignancies: A Virtual Experience

The virtual Independent Satellite Symposia (ISS) are industry-sponsored, CME-certified symposia offered in conjunction with virtual ASH specialty meetings. These events are not part of the official ASH meeting program and are planned solely by the sponsoring company.

The following independent satellite symposia will take place in conjunction with the 2020 Meeting on Hematologic Malignancies (MHM). There is no fee to attend; and registration to MHM is not required to participate in the symposia.

From Trials to Clinical Practice in Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma: How the Experts Think & Treat

Thursday, August 27, 2020 - Saturday, September 12, 2020 - A Virtual Experience

This activity will feature hematologist/oncologist experts in the treatment of multiple myeloma. The panel will participate in a case-based format that will take a deep dive into the evolving data sets used in the treatment of R/R MM in a highly interactive learning style. This includes the key methods to stratify risk and monitor therapy along the disease continuum, assess current sequencing options and unmet needs in the field, review emerging strategies in relapsed/refractory disease with a focus on emerging targets and approaches, and share best practices on how and when to select patients who will benefit from newer therapeutic options or clinical trial enrollment in multiple myeloma. Case studies will be used to place real-world data and trial findings into the context of practical applications.
