Programme Summary:

This second meeting organized by ESH to focus in depth upon the clinical management of patients with chronic myeloid leukemia and the myeloproliferative neoplasms, builds on the experiences and scientific progress since the highly successful Inaugural “How to Treat CML and MPNs” held in Dublin in March 2019. This “ 2nd How to Diagnose and Treat CML and MPNs” uses a case-based format to scrutinise with experts in the field relevant issues in diagnosis, prognostication, therapy selection, efficacy assessment, and management of toxicities for these patients. The format for this meeting will be highly interactive with a mixture of case-based didactic lectures, roundtable discussions regarding challenging clinical scenarios, and debates on controversial areas of management. This first ESH meeting for MPNs occurring since the onset of the COVID19 Pandemic will cover the specific patient implications for CML and MPN patients. The faculty for this event represent the clinical and scientific leaders of the MPN community from around the world and we anticipate great opportunities for interactions and discussions. Clinical haematologists, hematology nurses, clinician scientists, hematology investigators, and those in training will find great value in attending and participating in this event.


This meeting will be valuable to you if you are looking for:

This unique meeting will be an intimate workshop with a case-based approach where active practicing haematologists and associated specialties will be able to learn from and interact with the global thought leaders in CML and MPNs. Participants will gain at the meeting better insights into managing both common and uncommon clinical scenarios for these patients and return home to apply this knowledge for their patients. Many of the lessons learned relevant to MPN and CML management from the COVID19 Pandemic will be discussed (risks, medicine dosing, thrombosis issues, use of electronic virtual visits in care).


Learning Objectives:

  • To understand the current diagnostic criteria for MPNs and CML, and their application particularly in challenging scenarios
  • To better understand the role of molecular mutation testing in diagnosis, prognosis, therapy selection and disease monitoring for CML and MPN patients
  • To be able to appreciate the clinical management of challenging scenarios in MPNS (i.e. early MF, accelerated phase MPN, CML-MPN overlap, pregnancy and parenting, and CML blast crisis)
  • To better understand and apply current guideline based management of CML and MPNs including stem cell transplant,
  • To be able to review the role and utilization of current approved therapies in CML and MPNs (interferons, JAK inhibitors, TKIs), as well as the potential role of agents in development.
  • To discuss evolving issues of COVID19 (and other infectious risks) and management of MPNs and CML



  • Optimizing cytoreduction
  • Management of CML with TKI 
  • MPN risk stratification including vascular events
  • Evolving therapies in Myelofibrosis 
  • Management of advanced disease (MPN and CML)  
  • Treatment free remission in CML
