Priority 16 from the Myeloma (Canada) PSP

UNCERTAINTY: How can we prevent and/or manage the neuropathy associated with myeloma and its treatment?  (JLA PSP Priority 16)
Overall ranking 16
JLA question ID 0113/16
Explanatory note Peripheral neuropathy can occur as a result of myeloma and its treatment. A common side-effect of myeloma treatment, neuropathy warranted its own indicative questions because it can also occur as a result of the disease (in the abence of treatment) and because of the volume of responses associated with it. Participants would like new ways to prevent, reduce, or manage neuropathy and new treatments that do not have this side-effect.
