RCPE organizing symposium on haematology

LAHORE ROYAL College of Physicians of Edinburgh (RCPE) is organising a symposium (teleconference) on Haematology on Friday (tomorrow). The Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCH&RC) is making arrangements to have this telecasted live in the hospital.

Significant advances have occurred in all aspects of haematology in the last decade. These include a new era for oral anticoagulation therapy with the emergence of the first oral anticoagulants since warfarin over 50 years ago. These agents are likely to change the management of many patients at risk of thrombosis. Meanwhile, improved understanding of disease path physiology is being translated into novel targeted therapies for patients with haematological malignancies. These developments, however, occur on the background of an increasingly elderly population and incidence of haematological malignancies. All these exciting new agents are expensive and occur at a time of increasing demand and greater patient complexity.

This one day programme will review the challenges presented by the use of these novel therapeutic approaches and the changing patient demographics; both are likely to have a major impact on primary and secondary care.The news.
