Overview:

Hematologists and primary care physicians play a pivotal role in the diagnosis and management of patients who present with hematologic symptoms of unknown origin. This program is designed to raise your awareness of rare hematologic disorders (ie, Gaucher’s disease, paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria, thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura, and immune thrombocytopenia) and improve your ability to provide accurate and early diagnosis, as well as appropriate therapy for your patients with these conditions. The program will feature a mixed format of didactic lectures, panel discussions, and interactive clinical case studies. Throughout the case presentations, the program faculty of renowned experts in uncommon blood disorders will encourage you to seek clues from the clinical history and presentation, consider the differential diagnoses, and assess which tests are required to secure a definitive diagnosis. During the activity, the faculty will review the latest clinical data, share their best practices, review new and emerging strategies in the context of existing diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms, and offer opportunities for you to ask questions and share your own perspectives.

What you will learn about rare hematologic disorders:

  • Strategies to improve your differential diagnosis skills
  • Relevance of the pathophysiology and biology to the management of these disorders
  • State-of-the-art treatment approaches and treatment-related adverse event mitigation

Target Audience

These activities are intended for medical oncologists, hematologists, and other oncology healthcare professionals interested in understanding the current treatment guidelines and diagnostic strategies for patients who present with hematologic symptoms of unknown origin. Fellows, researchers, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals are also invited to attend.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Illustrate the importance of rigorous differential diagnosis for patients with rare hematologic disorders
  • Detail pathophysiology of multiple rare diseases with hematologic implications and how underlying biology informs treatment decisions
  • Describe established evidence concerning treatment strategies to care for patients with thrombocytopenia or thrombosis resulting from rare blood disorders
  • Incorporate methods to proactively mitigate the impact of disease and treatment-related adverse events resulting from treating rare blood disorders
