Iron deficiency anemia is a prevalent condition with far-reaching consequences. Fortunately, recent revisions to treatment targets and a recommendation for novel approaches are helping shift and solidify the treatment and management paradigm in iron deficiency anemia (IDA). As frontline clinicians with expertise across a multiplicity of women's health conditions, obstetricians and gynecologists are optimally placed within the healthcare team to ensure the provision of safe, effective, and evidence-based treatment approaches for female patients with IDA. Hence, the goal of this educational initiative is to equip obstetricians, gynecologists, and other women's health professionals with the latest published and emerging data related to prevalence, risk factors, and therapeutic strategies for IDA, with an emphasis on IV iron supplementation modalities, in an effort to improve outcomes for their patients.
