Nursing Symposium Overview

The 4th Nursing Symposium will be held on Friday, September 13, 2019, in conjunction with the 17th International Myeloma Workshop in Boston, Massachusetts. The audience for this live conference is nurse practitioners, physician assistants, clinical nurse specialists, advanced degree nurses, hematology/oncology nurses, pharmacists, and physicians. In particular, the educational symposia will include didactic, interactive, evidence-based, and fair-balanced content targeted to the supportive care of the patient with multiple myeloma.

There will be a variety of educational formats conducive to interaction and includes live oral presentations with Q&A sessions. Nurses will be able to disseminate the latest nursing research in the field of myeloma with the best-selected abstracts presented live in a plenary session and also in poster format within the main program.
