MM Interactive is an exciting way for myeloma patients to get involved at patient seminars.
Participants have key pads that allow them them to answer questions posed by the faculty. When patients use their key pads, we can all learn how myeloma is impacting each and every patient:
- What are the worst problems?
- What help is needed?
- Which treatments give the best quality of life?
- Is reimbursement and/or cost a critical factor in getting the best care?
- What do doctors need to do differently?
- How can the IMF help?
As the results flash immediately on a large screen in front of the audience, everybody learns and plans can be made to make a real difference in the quality of life of myeloma patients.
MM Interactive made its debut at the the IMF Patient and Family Seminar in Seattle. Experience it firsthand at the Los Angeles Patient and Family Seminar in January. Or see it at work through the tapes available through the Myeloma at the Movies lending library. Myeloma at the Movies allows local support groups to provide access to the Patient and Family Seminars in manageable segments, including the new MM Interactive™ component.
