How to provide better supportive care

Jul 28, 2022
Learning objective: After reading this article, learners will be able to cite a new clinical development in AML

During a meeting of the AML Hub Steering Committee on June 1, 2022, Gail Roboz, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, US, chaired a discussion session on the topic of “How to provide better supportive care”, which was identified as an unmet educational need within AML treatment.

Roboz starts by introducing “supportive care” as a subject that is often overlooked when presenting information to clinicians and patients, and then invites the committee to comment on the prophylaxis of infectious diseases in their own clinical practice. The committee then offers recommendations for coping with diagnosis and intensive chemotherapy, exploring subjects such as the evolving literature on this topic, and the patient’s need for continuity. Finally, they cover the diet in patients with AML, and Uwe Platzbecker concludes by highlighting the impact that excessive use of prophylactic supplementation can have on the microbiome and recommending careful selection within treatment plans.
