Ask the Experts: Challenges for Health-system Pharmacists in Managing Acute Bleeding in Patients with Hemophilia
Wednesday, February 27, 2013, 12-1 pm EST
Accreditation for Pharmacists
The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education. This activity provides 1 hour (0.1 CEU) of continuing pharmacy education credit (activity # 0204-000-13-419-L01-P).
Methods and Format
This is a live web-based activity consisting of audio, presentation slides, and an activity evaluation tool. Participants must participate in the entire presentation and complete the course evaluation to receive continuing pharmacy education credit. Participants may print their official statements of continuing pharmacy education credit immediately following the activity. This activity is provided free of charge. View full CE processing instructions.
This continuing pharmacy education activity was planned to meet the needs of pharmacists in a variety of practice settings, and it would be particularly beneficial for pharmacists, clinical specialists, pharmacy managers, leaders, and educators who are interested in emergency medicine, critical care, coagulation factors, hemophilia, hemostasis, patient safety, and formulary management.
While hemophilia is rare and is primarily managed in outpatient settings and hemophilia treatment centers, acute bleeding situations and planned surgeries with a high risk of bleeding warrant prompt treatment in health systems. In this activity, the faculty will provide health-system pharmacists with practice pearls for addressing both system and patient-care challenges related to the management of acute bleeding in patients with hemophilia.
The content for this live webinar is based on questions raised by participants in a recent educational symposium on this topic. Time for questions and answers from the webinar audience will be provided at the end of the presentation.
At the conclusion of this application-based educational activity, participants should be able to
- Outline elements of a systems approach for the management of acute bleeding in patients with hemophilia.
- Develop a plan for dosing and monitoring agents used to manage acute bleeding in patients with hemophilia
