Overview

Multiple myeloma management has advanced significantly in recent years, providing new hope for myeloma patients but creating new challenges for health care providers. Using an engaging and entertaining game show format (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 information on several fast-evolving areas of myeloma care, such as optimal use of staging tests, new therapies for both newly diagnosed and relapsed/refractory patients, and adverse event management. As players correctly answer questions, they accumulate points that will—hopefully!—earn them the title of Myeloma Master.
