how we do it       

Dr Rhona Sinclair, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) mandates that patients with anaemia should be diagnosed and treated appropriately before, and after, surgery. The aim of this session is to benchmark your practice against the rest of the UK, and learn from how others have set up and run their anaemia clinic, including real-world data and the role of IV iron.

The first talk in this lunchtime symposium will review how to identify, diagnose and treat anaemic patients. The second talk will give details about how a new anaemia clinic was set up and how it is running, including practical tips on how to overcome the many hurdles along the way, as well as service impact data. The third speaker will cover experiences from a pre-op anaemia service which has been running for over three years, including how they target IV iron treatment for the patients that will benefit most, and how the clinic has evolved over that time.

There will also be an opportunity at the end of the session to discuss the development of business plans for anaemia clinics, including how and what data to capture and how to present your plans to your managers and commissioners.

Industry-sponsored symposium, supported by Pharmacosmos UK, including funding of speakers.
