The target audience includes hematology/oncology nurses, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, transplant clinicians, and other members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team who are involved in the diagnosis and management of patients with AML.
This educational activity will provide members of the multidisciplinary cancer care team with the latest information to improve their knowledge and confidence in the diagnosis and treatment of AML through interactive online activities. This module begins with an overview of diagnostic and therapeutic considerations in the management of AML and will then follow three animated scenarios that address communication within the multidisciplinary team. Each animation is followed by a panel discussion.
Upon completion of the activity, participants should be able to do the following:
- Choose appropriate tests to diagnose AML
- Review therapeutic options for the management of AML
- Establish an appropriate sequence of therapies
- Manage relapsed and refractory AML
- Identify appropriate patients for transplantation
- Monitor patients for adverse events associated with treatment and manage them accordingly
