Activity Description

The advent of innovative antibody platforms, including CD38 and BCMA-targeted strategies, has radically transformed modern management of multiple myeloma (MM), offering patients a broader spectrum of therapeutic choices along their treatment journey. For hematology-oncology pharmacists, the advent of innovative antibody platforms presents a clear opportunity to ensure effective care coordination, patient education, and the proper administration of highly effective treatment options.

In this recording from the 2024 Hematology/Oncology Pharmacy Association (HOPA) 20th Annual Conference, a panel of myeloma experts exchange ideas and present clinical cases to illustrate the central role that hematology-oncology pharmacists play in delivering care with antibody platforms in multiple myeloma. Each “Clinical Consult” case conversation will link to the latest evidence supporting CD38, BCMA, and non-BCMA antibody strategies and provide guidance on how pharmacists can lead the integration of innovative antibody platforms across the spectrum of myeloma care. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from leading experts and sharpen your skills in the context of multiple myeloma care!

Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of hematology-oncology pharmacists, pharmacy managers, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of multiple myeloma.
