With the constant evolution of oncology research, it is a significant challenge for community-based
hematologists/oncologists to stay abreast of the most effective multiple myeloma treatment paradigms.
Tumor board-styled dinner meetings have been proven as valuable, educational tools that enable cancer
care professionals to assimilate the latest trends in hematology, oncology, and stem cell transplantation.
Hosted by Texas Oncology Cancer Center-Sugar Land, this certified CME/CE, case-based meeting
offers cancer-care providers the benefits of tumor boards including the opportunity to discuss difficult
case vignettes presented by local physicians. The activity also features a lecture by a guest expert faculty
in multiple myeloma patient care. Participants will take away a multidisciplinary opinion to assist in
formulating and delivering optimal treatment strategies for their patients.
This continuing medical education meeting is intended for community-based hematologists, medical and
surgical oncologists, and fellows. Internists, general/family practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician
assistants, and mid-level practitioners involved in the care of multiple myeloma patients are encouraged
At the end of this meeting you should be able to:
• Describe multidisciplinary treatment options for cancer patients
