Current work plans
The UKMS Guidelines Group has been working on a guideline for the treatment of relapsed and refractory patients, and good progress has been made towards publication this year.
UKMS Good Practice Papers (GPPs) on the investigation and management of monoclonal gammopathy of undetermined significance (MGUS), a separate GPP on the investigation and management of monoclonal gammopathy of renal significance (MGRS) and a GPP/guideline on imaging in multiple myeloma are also at various stages of development. Work will start soon on a GPP on the managment of smouldering myeloma.
