Overcoming Pediatric Iron Deficiency Anemia with IV Iron: Interprofessional Approaches to Integrating New Data, Using Novel Agents, and Optimizing Care

August 29, 2022

Target Audience

This Grand Rounds educational series is targeted to pediatricians, primary care physicians, pediatric hematologists, and the nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists who help them provide care for pediatric patients.

Learning Objectives

  • Review the clinical gravity and foundational pathophysiology of iron deficiency anemia (IDA) in pediatric patients, with an emphasis on patient impact and the need for treatment.
  • Evaluate the evolving clinical trial evidentiary base for intravenous (IV) iron as IDA management in pediatric patients, including a summary of recent FDA approvals and updated label indications for IV iron therapies.
  • Discuss practical aspects of IV iron usage in the pediatric setting, including appropriate dosing, safety considerations, and clinician adherence to evidence-based IDA treatment standards.
  • Use a real-world, case-based format to design evidence-supported strategies for recognizing, diagnosing, treating, and evaluating IDA in pediatric patients, focusing on the interpolation of IV iron into the management paradigm.

Presented by Creative Educational Concepts, LLC.

Supported through an independent educational grant from American Regent.
