This live virtual TeleECHO program will explore the management of ocular toxicities and other adverse events related to treatment of relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM). A brief didactic presentation will discuss how and why these adverse events occur. The importance of Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) programs for monitoring your patients for corneal changes and other effects of later-line therapy for multiple myeloma will also be presented. Interactive case studies will illustrate strategies for choosing therapy and for managing treatment-related adverse events in the RRMM setting.
