Midyear Symposium & Live Webcast
Patients with hemophilia who are acutely ill with bleeding issues or having surgery are a challenge in the hospital setting, and pharmacists can provide assistance in initiating therapy with hemostatic agents and play a key role in dosing, monitoring, and revising patient regimens. This educational activity will provide an overview of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of hemophilia and will outline various strategies for treatment of patients with hemophilia, specifically those with acute bleeding or planned surgery. Factors to consider when making formulary decisions regarding hemostatic agents will be presented. The activity will conclude with a discussion of patient scenarios illustrating innovative strategies for managing acute bleeding using available treatments in patients with hemophilia in the hospital setting.
After attending this application-based educational activity, participants should be able to
- Discuss the epidemiology and pathophysiology of various types of hemophilia.
- Examine the various pharmacologic approaches to the treatment of patients with hemophilia, including patient-specific factors to consider.
- Consider key factors when making formulary decisions on the selection of coagulation factors.
- Devise a plan for using laboratory values and physical signs to influence selection of available treatments in a patient with hemophilia.
- Monitor patients with hemophilia who are receiving hemostatic agents for acute bleeding for signs that bleeding is resolving.
- Discuss selected treatment strategies for patients requiring hemostatic agents.
