At this time, I’m pleased to share with you the March installment of Multiple Myeloma Updates for Advanced Practitioners in Oncology.
As we begin to enjoy the long-awaited coming of spring and all of its newness and promise of hope, we’re also in the midst of Myeloma Awareness Month. In this month of education and dissemination of information on multiple myeloma (MM), I’m so pleased to announce the publication of a brand new supplement to the Journal of the Advanced Practitioner in Oncology (JADPRO), entitled The Advanced Practitioner’s Guide to Multiple Myeloma.
This 3.0 CME/CE/CEU-accredited supplement to JADPRO is a comprehensive resource for advanced practitioners that was jointly provided by the International Myeloma Foundation, the Annenberg Center for Health Sciences at Eisenhower, and JADPRO. It was developed by the members of the International Myeloma Foundation Nurse Leadership Board, whose primary mission is understanding and developing strategies to address the unmet needs of MM patients and their caregivers. As a founding member of the Nurse Leadership Board, I'm proud to have contributed to this supplement.
Don’t miss the foreword by Guest Editor Sandra Kurtin, RN, MSN, AOCN, ANP-C, of the University of Arizona Cancer Center, aptly titled, “The Future Is Bright.”
As in previous months, I’ve also collected several links to articles about MM in the news and in the literature. Again, I urge you to watch the informative video roundtable discussion that my colleagues and I recorded at the ASH meeting in Orlando.
In the spirit of Myeloma Awareness Month, feel free to share this MM resource, the video roundtable discussion, and the JADPRO supplement with your colleagues.
