  • Overview

    Non-advanced systemic mastocytosis (nonAdvSM) is poorly understood and likely often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Multiple issues complicate the accurate differential diagnosis of nonAdvSM subtypes. Recent updates for diagnostic criteria, as well as validated assessments and a greater understanding of laboratory findings for this population, are providing practitioners with additional tools for arriving at an accurate diagnosis. Although many therapeutics exist for addressing symptoms of nonAdvSM, those treatments are purely palliative. To date, no disease-modifying drugs have been FDA-approved for treating nonAdvSM. However, therapeutics that are already approved for advanced SM or other indications are being evaluated in the nonAdvSM space. These drugs, particularly KIT inhibitors, have the potential to improve patient outcomes for nonAdvSM. Healthcare providers are in a unique position to improve patient outcomes by becoming experts in diagnosing, assessing, and monitoring patients with nonAdvSM; as well as ensuring access to the latest, most effective treatments. To that end, there is a need to increase disease state awareness and close knowledge gaps around the diagnosis and management of this rare disease.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team, including Hematologists/Oncologists, Pathologists, Immunologists, Allergists, Dermatologists, Nurses, Pharmacists, and other clinicians involved in the management of patients with non-advanced systemic mastocytosis (nonAdvSM).

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to: 

    • Describe the most recent updates to the World Health Organization (WHO) and NCCN guidelines on classifying non-advanced SM
    • Explain the advantages and limitations of each criterion and test that are relevant to nonAdvSM
    • Discuss how to use information from validated assessments for patient symptom reporting and risk stratification to enhance clinical assessment and inform treatment decisions
    • Explain which specialists are best suited to dealing with each type of symptom common to patients with nonAdvSM
    • Formulate approaches to provide optimal management of patients with nonAdvSM
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 1.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.
