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.
