This year's program had a high volume of interest with the largest pre-registration to date. The program presented the nurse centric model of care and addressed nursing issues along the continuum of side effects management from prevention to palliation.

Attendee's comments included: "Great information - Very applicable for nurses and my practice - Best one yet" and "Good incorporation of nurse roles and nurse centric model. Excellent reinforcement of multiple myeloma diagnosis process and side effect management and treatment."
