How We Do It®: Pathology Considerations for Diagnosis and Therapeutic Decision Making in Hematologic Malignancies

Release Date: July 30, 2021
Expiration Date: July 30, 2022

Activity Overview

Clinical Cases and ConversationsTM, one of PER®’s signature educational formats, is a video-based program in which a panel of distinguished experts use clinical cases to provide clinical practice perspectives and engage in discussions on a particular clinical topic. In this activity, 4 key thought leaders will first provide an overview of the current best practice and emerging strategies for diagnostic and prognostic testing in hematologic malignancies. Then, each of the expert faculty will present cases and supporting data that illustrate the incorporation of molecular testing in the diagnosis and treatment planning in acute myeloid leukemia, chronic lymphocytic leukemia, and multiple myeloma.
