With the increase in the lifespan of patients with beta thalassemia and demographic shifts in the U.S., hematologists are treating more patients with this condition. As such, more education is needed on key topics including disease fundamentals, transitioning patients to adult care, new and emerging therapies, and issues around transfusion.The goal of this educational curriculum, Improving Beta-thalassemia Outcomes, is to establish impactful small group interactions between members of the hematology care team that will, through a variety of collaborative educational experiences, help them to improve disease management and care coordination to yield better outcomes for their patients with Beta-thalassemia.
The following questions are designed to assess your knowledge and practice of patients with Beta-thalassemia.
This module will provide a very brief overview on the background and pathophysiology of Beta-thalassemia. We will also discuss transfusions and iron chelation in Beta-thalassemia.
This module will cover novel therapies for beta-thalassemia that are in late stage clinical development or have been recently approved.
This module will cover issues and best practices in transitioning pediatric patients with beta-thalassemia to adult care.
The following questions will assess changes in your knowledge and practice of key aspects in the management of patients with Beta-thalassemia based off of your participation in this educational initiative.
Please join me for a brief kick off where you'll have a chance to greet other group members and discuss our collective goals and priorities for the next few weeks. I’m really looking forward to seeing you.
This virtual live discussion provides an opportunity for the group to convene with their group leader to discuss aspects of the self-study learning modules.
This virtual live discussion provides an opportunity for the group to convene with their group leader to discuss aspects of the case-based group task.
This group task activity has been designed for the learner to explore a patient case study and to apply the knowledge they have learned throughout the activity to determine the most appropriate way to treat the patient.
Thank you for your interest. Currently, the curriculum is closed for enrollment but we encourage you to keep an eye out for future opportunities or alternative programs that might align with your educational goals.
