The goal of this activity is to improve the knowledge and competence of learners in using new and emerging therapeutic options for patients with ITP.
This program is intended for physicians and other healthcare professionals who care for patients with ITP.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify newly diagnosed patients with ITP who would benefit from intensified therapy to improve remission rates
- Select optimal second or subsequent lines of therapy for patients with ITP who have had an insufficient response to corticosteroids, immunoglobulins, splenectomy, and/or a thrombopoietin receptor agonist
- Plan therapeutic strategies to manage thrombocytopenia in special populations of patients, including children, pregnant women, those with COVID-19, chronic liver disease, undergoing a planned medical procedure, or receiving chemotherapy
- Evaluate new clinical trial data and the clinical practice implications of novel targeted therapies in patients with immune thrombocytopenia
- Discuss ongoing clinical trials investigating novel targeted therapies and combination regimens for the treatment of immune thrombocytopenia
