The 62nd American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition, held from December 5th through 8th, 2020, is the world's premier event in hematology—both malignant and nonmalignant. Although the ASH Annual Meeting regularly features research that is key to improving patient care, keeping up with all the advances—and knowing how and when to apply them to the management of patients—can be difficult. This activity focuses on abstracts from ASH 2020 in acute lymphoblastic leukemia, acute myeloid leukemia, and multiple myeloma, with a focus on data that can potentially improve patient care, as well as insights from faculty on practice application.
Abstracts and Expert Commentary
After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:
- Identify recently presented data across the cancer care continuum for major hematologic malignancies
- Apply strategies for the management and monitoring of patients with hematologic malignancies based on the most current efficacy and safety evidence
Oncology NPs, PAs, and nurses
