This activity is designed for researchers in hematology/oncology and for hematologists and oncologists who diagnose and treat patients with hematologic malignancies. The program will provide the intended audience with cutting edge research about newly approved and emerging treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma that can be incorporated into a precision medicine framework to improve outcomes of patients with hematologic malignancies.

After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

  • Describe the evolving role of precision medicine in the treatment and management of patients with leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma
  • Outline new and emerging treatments for leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma that can be incorporated into a precision medicine framework through their specific targets and mechanisms of action
  • Define important factors that currently limit the incorporation of precision medicine into hematology/oncology practice and strategies that can help to overcome these limitations
  • Implement strategies that optimize the communication and coordination between healthcare professionals who are involved in the provision of precision medicine
