Myeloma diagnosis as a multi-speciality challenge

Myeloma sits within an increasingly complex and pressurised healthcare environment. It is important to understand the barriers that prolong diagnosis, both in primary and secondary care, in order to develop interventions to minimise delays.

Myeloma UK Grand Rounds

In collaboration with colleagues from the UKMF, Myeloma UK have developed a set of slides and a corresponding poster that are available to download and use in a Grand Round event. Please click the download buttons below.

We would like to acknowledge all participating hospitals through news stories and on our website, so if you have or would like to hold a Myeloma Grand Round please could you inform a member of the HCP team by emailing earlydiagnosis@myeloma.org.uk

An example Myeloma UK Grand Rounds news story, including feedback from the host hospital can be read here.

“Following our Grand Round, two patients with kidney problems were identified as myeloma patients and started treatment within a few days.  We are grateful to our colleagues in other departments for their assistance in identifying patients with suspected myeloma.”
Dr Neil Rabin, North Middlesex Hospital

Myeloma UK are also eager to co-partner education events for GPs.

Please get in touch if you can direct us to the relevant person in your local CCG or if you would be interested in hosting a GP education event at your hospital. Email earlydiagnosis@myeloma.org.uk
