Activity Overview

This educational activity is targeted to obstetricians, gynecologists, gynecologic surgeons, and the interprofessional women’s health care team of nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists. Designed as a dynamic and engaging, microburst, whiteboard-animated webinar series hosted on EpocratesCME, which can be viewed sequentially and/or as standalone units for learner convenience, this educational initiative will offer attendees a comprehensive appraisal of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) as a highly prevalent disease state in women’s health, with emphasis on dysfunctional uterine bleeding, pregnancy, and post-partum hemorrhage (PPH) as common etiologies, and including a circumscription of the patient-centric burden of illness, multifaceted clinical presentation, and consequent clinical ramifications.
Expert faculty will also provide a deep dive into the evolving clinical trial evidentiary base for intravenous (IV) iron, with emphasis on next-generation products and the rationale for their preferential clinical utility in women’s health relative to oral iron and/or older IV iron agents. The final installment is designed as a real-world practicum and will focus on practical aspects of implementing next-generation IV iron into the OB/GYN clinic, as well as the fundaments of designing individualized treatment plans for DUB-associated IDA on an evidence-basis.
Each webinar will be bolstered by an innovative whiteboard animation that emphasizes and illustrates key teaching points for optimal learner engagement, knowledge retention, and sustained practice improvement.
