MORRISVILLE, Pa., Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- MediCom Worldwide, Inc., an accredited provider of continuing medical education for physicians, pharmacists, and nurses, announces the launch of an online repository of resources and education on the treatment of multiple myeloma by a multidisciplinary network of health care practitioners.
The goal of Managing Myeloma (www.managingmyeloma.com) is to provide an extensive array of programs to support clinical challenges and self-directed learning related to the diagnosis, assessment, and treatment options available for patients suffering from multiple myeloma.
Multiple myeloma is the second most common hematologic malignancy, with a significant mortality rate. As treatment innovations become available, physicians are challenged with incorporating these into their patient management decisions. The new site was developed to meet this challenge working with the input of a group of renowned clinical experts in oncology. In addition, all content developed for the site is subject to rigorous scientific peer review prior to posting, assuring the most relevant and accurate information.
Registered members of the multiple myeloma resource may access and print supporting references, view video and audio programs, read relevant literature, and view a schedule of upcoming events and meetings. New technologies allow for simultaneous deployment of the same information in a variety of media types and formats, thereby allowing users to tailor their educational experience to their individual needs.
Managing Myeloma offers a Fellowship Scholarship for oncology fellows to attend international conferences. The applicants must follow the submission criteria and provide a challenging patient case study from their institution. The most recent winners are Edward A. Faber Jr., DO, MS (attending the American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation) and Nilanjan Ghosh, MBBS, MD (attending the 12th International Myeloma Workshop).
MediCom Worldwide is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to sponsor continuing medical education for physicians; approved by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education to provide pharmacy continuing education; and approved by the California State Board of Registered Nursing to provide nursing continuing education.
