What is the patient’s role in making treatment decisions? In this month’s episode, Dr. Joshua Richter from the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, provides his perspective on treating newly diagnosed myeloma patients, including smoldering myeloma, describes the evolution of CRAB criteria to SLIM CRAB criteria, discusses the importance of quality-of-life considerations, describes how COVID-19 has affected treatment, and reviews exciting myeloma treatment options on the horizon.
