Evaluating the Impact of an Accredited CPD Mini Course on Myeloproliferative Neoplasms (MPN) and Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS): A Case Study

Cancer is a devastating disease that requires keeping abreast of the latest research developments. The chronic myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) are new types of cancers probably unknown by the majority of family physicians, nurses, certain types of specialists, and other healthcare professionals. Continuing professional development (CPD) is a promising strategy to keep up-to-date and maintain licensure.
