Topics covered include:
- What measures should I be following? which helps patients with myeloma or a related condition understand if they are extremely vulnerable or not and what measures they should be following
- Information about treatment changes due to the pandemic: How the COVID-19 outbreak could affect decisions about your treatment, How COVID-19 could impact your dialysis and Treatment FAQs
- Information about advanced care planning: what it is and why it’s important

The hub is primarily aimed at patients so healthcare professionals can signpost their patients to it knowing the information is accurate and appropriate.
Healthcare professionals can also use the hub themselves to find all the latest guidelines in one place.
