How hospitals approach clinical pathways in hemophilia and other rare bleeding disorders


Tuesday, May 4th, 2021 | 11:00 AM - 12:00 AM CT

Hospital-based clinical pathways are important in providing proper care and achieving optimal patient outcomes. People with rare bleeding disorders may present to the hospital with bleeding that can be life- or limb-threatening if they do not receive proper clinical management in a timely manner. Example clinical pathways were developed, in collaboration with experts in hematology, emergency medicine, and clinical pharmacy, for those patients presenting to the hospital with a rare bleeding disorder. During this presentation, you will see an example of one of these pathways, its utility and how it can be used in the hospital setting to manage a patient with a rare bleeding disorder. This is a Novo Nordisk sponsored Webinar featuring Angela Karnes Kellum, PharmD.

Learning points:
 
  • Learn how clinical pathways can optimize clinical care through implementation of standardized processes
  • Understand best practices in developing clinical pathways and why they are particularly beneficial when treating patients with rare bleeding disorders in the hospital
  • Learn how to apply clinical pathways into your hospital through case examples
