Requirements for CE Credit

To claim credit for these sessions, participants must complete the following for each session (with a unique UAN):
  1. Visit this site. Make sure you are logged in and registered before proceeding.
  2. Complete an evaluation by clicking the green evaluation button for each session/block.
  3. Enter the evaluation code that was given to you at the end of the session you attended.
  4. Answer all questions honestly - we appreciate your feedback! All responses are stored anonymously.
  5. Click submit. As soon as you submit, a report containing the NABP ePID and DOB stored in your profile will be automatically sent to CPE Monitor.
  6. Please allow up to 48 hours for processing. Your credit should appear in your NABP profile online.

If you experience difficulty, please contact our office so that we may assist you. We are happy to help!

 
For simultaneous sessions, participants should claim credit ONLY for those sessions they attended and ignore those they did not attend. Attendance will be reconciled against sign-in sheets. Those sessions not attended will be removed from the participants' profiles after the conclusion of the conference. Participants are responsible for ensuring accuracy of credit reporting and receipt of credit. It is recommended that participants log on and reivew the information under "my account" prior to submitting the evaluation. NABP ePID and date of birth must be accurate for credit reporting to occur. Evaluations cannot be reopened after 14 days.
 
Participants are encouraged to check their NABP eProfiles for receipt of credit within one week of submitting their evaluation(s). If a participant notices an error in credit on their NABP e-profile, they are encouraged to contact our office as soon as possible. To best comply with ACPE's CE credit reporting policy, St. Louis College of Pharmacy at UHSP is unable, for any reason, to award or correct CE credit if more than 60 days have passed from the event.

 

 

 

The treatment armamentarium for multiple myeloma has significantly expanded in the past decade, with various new drug approvals and therapeutic targets. These approvals have improved prognosis and survival of patients with multiple myeloma, though relapse is still common. Multiply-relapsed disease carries a poor prognosis, and there is a need for new therapies and novel therapeutic targets. Given success in other malignancies, chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy is currently under investigation as a means to improve outcomes for patients for patients with multiply relapsed disease. Relatively few pharmacists have encountered these agents in clinical practice or have been exposed to preliminary data surrounding their use. This seminar will attempt to provide education surrounding CAR T-cell therapies in relapsed or refractory multiple myeloma and preliminary efficacy and safety data surrounding some of the agents currently being studied.

Objectives

  • Describe attributes of B-cell maturation antigen (BCMA) that make it a viable chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell target.
  • Identify advantages of CAR T-cell therapy in relapsed and refractory multiple myeloma (R/R MM).
