Prof. Ludwig explains that educated patients are better able to seek advice, respond better in difficult situations, and are better able to discuss the management of their treatment, translating into improved emotional wellbeing. This interview took place during the 18th International Myeloma Workshop (IMW 2021) congress.


Heinz Ludwig, MD, has received research funding from Amgen and Takeda; and has received speaker’s honoraria and has participated in advisory boards for Amgen, Takeda, Sanofi, Janssen, Celgene-BMS and Seattle Genetics.
