AM23-MN-26-O: ASHI/AABB Joint Session: The Problem with Platelets: How perspectives of various practitioners involved in platelet support of refractory patients has led to continuing controversies (Enduring)

‐ Oct 18, 2023 7:00pm

Credits: None available.

In this session, we will demonstrate how various practitioners caring for the same immune refractory patient can have widely different practices regarding platelet support for the patient. We will show how this can lead to delays in treatment, less than effective treatment for the patient, and a waste of a scarce resource. We will propose current best practices and better communication among the practitioners involved. Additionally, we will introduce Platelet Refractory Evaluation Workgroup, which has been formed to outline the perceptions, expectations, limitations, and efficacy of managing platelet refractory patients.
