CML Interactive Cases: An Immersive Simulated Learning Experience

This educational activity will provide an opportunity to explore two different CML cases. Learners will navigate treatment decisions based on patient presentation, history, and other findings that may impact the therapeutic approach.

CML Program

Case 1
This case explores risk assessment and initial treatment approach, monitoring treatment response, managing side effects, long-term therapy, and the potential for treatment-free remission.
Case 2
This case explores possible reasons for treatment failure, monitoring and optimizing treatment adherence, monitoring treatment response and side effects, and multiple lines of therapy based on treatment history and risk.

The goals of this set of simulated patient cases are to provide guidance to the interdisciplinary team caring for patients with myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML) on:

  • The optimal diagnosis and classification of both MDS and AML
  • Risk stratification and individualized treatment selection
  • Assessment of treatment responses
  • Monitoring for and mitigation of adverse events, and
  • Patient education regarding prognosis and treatment choices

These activities are supported by an independent medical education grant from Celgene.
