A Podcast Series
Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is an autoimmune disorder characterized by the increased destruction of platelets. It is a highly heterogeneous disease with variable clinical manifestations. Several new therapies have been introduced in recent years to target disease pathophysiology. Choice of therapy is based on shared decision-making with patients. In these 2 podcasts, an advanced practice provider and expert faculty discuss factors associated with ITP and strategies for managing initial and refractory ITP. Considerations for individualizing treatment and special populations are discussed. Listeners can earn a total of 0.50 credit hours.
