This online activity is focused on the individualization of care through sequencing, novel treatment options, therapy selection and communication for patients with relapsing and refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM).

After completing the CME activity, learners should be better able to:
- Describe the MOAs and clinical profiles of novel treatment options for patients with RRMM
- Individualize the selection and sequencing of novel drug combination therapies through multiple remissions and subsequent relapses based on disease-, treatment-, and patient-related factors
- Apply strategies that will improve communication, engagement, education, and decision making with patients with RRMM and their health care providers
