Supportive Care for Our Patients with Vascular Anomalies and Associated Syndromes
Wednesday, March 27 at 3 pm CT
Children’s Hospitals in the United States and world-wide now recognize the importance of caring for patients with Vascular Anomalies and Vascular Anomaly associated syndromes. Many of these centers involve the care and expertise of Pediatric Hematologists/Oncologists. Often times, we, the Pediatric Hematologist/Oncologists, provide long-term continuity of care for these patients. Unfortunately, there are limited opportunities to learn about the supportive care needs for this patient population. This webinar is designed to provide case-based, symptom-based, and disease-based needs identification as well as techniques, supportive care methods, and treatments used to care for our vascular anomalies patient population.
- Using cases, learners will identify the various supportive care needs for patients who have a variety of vascular anomaly diagnoses.
- Learners will have an improved understanding for the use of and troubleshoot problems encountered with use of compression garments for lymphedema and venous malformations.
- Learners will be able to confidently educate patients with vascular malformations regarding their risks for infection, thrombosis, and other complications based on their symptoms and/or known anomaly.
