Myeloma- where are we in 2020?

February 25 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Myeloma- where are we in 2020? Presented by Dr. Tony Calogero, Haematologist

What will this lecture cover?

In this talk, we will review the current tools we use in making a diagnosis of Multiple Myeloma, as well as those we use in assessing prognosis. We will touch on the current treatment options we have available in Australia, as well as looking at what is on the horizon in terms of new treatments. Clinical snippets and case summaries will be used to highlight important points, and allow Tony to relate his personal experiences in managing Myeloma.
