Learning Objectives

  • Initiate treatment for appropriate patients based on current diagnosis and staging criteria for monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance, smoldering MM, and active MM

  • Integrate the newly approved monoclonal antibodies into existing treatment strategies for patients with MM
  • Plan appropriate treatment strategies using the new-generation proteasome inhibitors for individual patients with MM
  • Consider efficacy and safety evidence of immunomodulatory agents in combination with novel agents to individualize therapeutic strategies for patients with MM
  • Identify ongoing trials of investigational approaches in the treatment of MM to aid referral of patients for study participation
