Welcome to Managing Myeloma. My name is Ajay Nooka. I am an assistant professor in the Division of Bone Marrow Transplant at the Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University. I am frequently asked, “What resources are available to educate my patients on potential disease-related complications of their myeloma?” Your doctor’s office is the first place to start. Your doctor should be able to provide educational resources for potential disease-related complications and probably a consultation with your pharmacist to educate on the potential therapy-related complications is needed. Very good clinical resources are available online at multiple websites such as the American Cancer Society and other online resources such as the educational tools at ManagingMyeloma.com, International Myeloma Foundation, and Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, other ones are Association of Community Cancer Centers. These are all good websites where you can find potential disease-related complications of multiple myeloma. Other websites of significance are ASCO educational website (American Society of Clinical Oncology), or the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society should be good resources to get updated on the potential disease-related complications. Thank you for viewing this activity. For additional resources, please view other educational activities on ManagingMyeloma.com.
