Abnormal haematological conditions are commonly encountered by clinicians in primary, secondary and tertiary care. A large number of patients are commenced on long-term anti-platelet and anti-coagulant therapy to treat a variety of conditions such as AF, strokes, angina, myocardial infarctions, post heart valve replacement surgeries, post joint replacement surgeries, myeloproliferative disorders, DVT, and PE. This one-day course will provide an essential overview of the common haematological disorders and their current updates which are directly relevant in every day clinical practice.

Taught by reputed Consultant Haematologists, amongst others, the topics covered during the day will include the following: (i) Abnormal blood counts and clotting tests; (ii) Management of bruising and increased paraprotein levels; (iii) Indications, contraindications and guidance on the usage of anti-platelet and anti-coagulant medications; (iv) Current guidelines and medications in the management of atrial fibrillation; (v) Identification and management of Hodgkins and Non-Hodgkins lymphomas and Leukemias; (vi) Clinical considerations when managing patients with sickle cell disease, thalassemia, and other common bleeding/coagulation disorders; (vii) Management of bleeding and clotting in patients with malignancies; (viii) Indications for FFP, prothrombin complex concentrate, cryoprecipitate and platelets; and (ix) Managing bleeding and surgery whilst the patient is on anticoagulants and antiplatelets.
