Through the use of patient cases, experienced nurse leaders interweave nursing best practices, cutting-edge research, and personal experiences in the treatment of myeloma. Nursing implications for myeloma treatments, including newly approved drugs, will be discussed. Tools and strategies for forming partnerships with patients and caregivers to optimize patient survivorship will be integrated throughout the cases. Nurses who practice in academic and community settings alike will be educated and inspired by this nurse-centric presentation.
