This ISTH has released a new online course for acquired thrombocytopenia through the ISTH Academy. This accredited course is an overview of platelet production and destruction mechanisms and the different acquired disorders which cause low platelet counts. It has four modules covering the mechanisms of platelet production and destruction, primary immune thrombocytopenia, heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, and drug-induced thrombocytopenia.

The learning objectives for the course are as follows: 

  • Participants will gain basic knowledge of platelet production and the mechanisms of thrombocytopenia
  • Participants will gain an understanding of the pathogenesis of acquired thrombocytopenias and be able to establish a differential diagnosis
  • Participants will gain an understanding of key concepts in the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of ITP, DITP and HIT
  • Participants will gain an understanding of key concepts in the management of ITP, DITP and HIT

"Thrombocytopenia is among the most common reason for consultation with a hematologist," said course co-author Donald Arnold, Chairman of the ISTH SSC Subcommittee on Platelet Immunology. "This course can help physicians understand the different underlying disorders and appropriately manage their impacted patients.”
