Learning programme on Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP)

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP): A resource for healthcare professionals on behalf of the Haematology Nurses and Healthcare Professionals Group. A faculty of specialist nurses working in the field of haematology/oncology, haematologists/oncologists, and patient advocates have collaborated to develop this program dedicated to learning about Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP).

This program features topics relevant to the multidisciplinary team approach to caring for patients with ITP and their relatives. Nurses, other allied health care professionals and patient organizations play an important role in this process and the group is excited to share with you the most current information and up-to-date recommendations for addressing both short-term and long-term management of patient and family needs.

The Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) Learning Program was made possible by grants from Amgen, Octapharma and Novartis Pharma Switzerland AG. On behalf of the faculty and the Haematology Nurses and Healthcare Professionals Group who developed this resource, we hope that the ITP Learning Program will be of value to you in your care of patients with Immune thrombocytopenia.
