Description

This series is presented in cooperation with the Community Oncology Program at CancerCare Manitoba. (Since this is a series, you only need to register once)

Throughout this series, local hematologists will lead educational sessions and provide practical and relevant information on topics related to the workup and management of blood disorders in a primary care setting.

Learning Objectives for the series

  1. Develop an approach to the work up of patients with suspected blood disorders, especially those with laboratory abnormalities (e.g. anemia or other cytopenias).
  2. Use clinical algorithms to inform the diagnosis, management, and optimal referral of patients with blood disorders.
  3. Review up to date treatment strategies for patients with common blood disorders.
