This virtually live activity has been designed for healthcare professionals to address the needs of patients with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome. In particular, the education will help learners diagnose myelodysplastic syndrome earlier and accurately stratify risk; recognize potential resistant to initial therapy in patients with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome; and apply best evidence-based practices and clinical data for initial and second-line therapeutic decisions for lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
This program is designed to address the educational needs of the multidisciplinary hematology-oncology team, including hematologists, pathologists, nurses, and other multidisciplinary health care professionals working together to address the needs of patients with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome.
Upon the completion of this program, attendees should be able to:
- Interpret diagnostic criteria to enable early diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome with accurate risk stratification
- Evaluate the potential for resistance to initial therapy in patients with lower-risk myelodysplastic syndrome
