Keeping pace with the rapid advances in multiple myeloma patient care presents a considerable challenge to health care providers—and potentially leaves patients at a loss to understand their disease and the options available for managing it. In the format of an entertaining interactive game (think Who Wants to Be a Millionaire), this activity tests players’ knowledge of current and emerging myeloma patient care best practices. Along the way—using a range of multimedia prompts and hints—the game presents and reviews critical, evidence-based, clinical content. As players correctly answer questions, they accumulate points that will—hopefully!—earn them the title of Myeloma Master.
