Expected time to complete this activity as designed: 60 minutes
There are no fees for participating in or receiving credit for this online activity.

Program Overview

In this activity, three myelofibrosis experts discuss how new advances and research should be applied in clinical practice using updated data presented at the ASH annual meeting. Determining the optimal course of action following JAK inhibitor treatment failure/intolerance/disease progression is extremely difficult because there is no standard course of action. Fortunately, research is identifying new agents that appear to be effective either alone or when combined with ruxolitinib in newly diagnosed and/or progressing patients.

Target Audience

This educational activity is designed for community-based hematologists, hematologist/oncologists and community-based advanced practice providers in hematology/oncology who provide care to patients with myelofibrosis.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Recount data presented at the ASH annual meeting examining ongoing studies focusing on MF treatment
  • Identify practice implications from recent clinical data on MF treatment

Agenda
