  • Overview

    This program provides awareness of current challenges in the treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). The emergence of newer therapeutic approaches leads to the creation of new opportunities to improve patient care and establish treatment goals. A greater understanding of new mechanistic actions may directly impact patient QoL. Clinicians, especially among hematologists and advanced care nurses, may lack confidence in their ability to fully treat patients with PNH due to inadequate control of anemia which is often overlooked due to a greater priority in measuring lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). In turn, by increasing awareness of the latest and emerging data surrounding the C3 pathway, its clinically meaningful impact on controlling PNH, and associated impact on efficacy and safety, hematologists and advanced care nurses can become more comfortable integrating new therapies into practice. These agents are likely to have a significant impact and fill an unmet need in the treatment of PNH and ultimately improve patient QoL.

  • Target Audience

    This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of the interprofessional team involved in the management of patients with PNH. This includes, but is not limited to, hematologists/oncologists, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other members of the interprofessional team who are involved in the management of patients with PNH.

  • Learning Objectives

    After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:

    1. Illustrate the pathophysiology of PNH and understand the consequences of the disease
    2. Describe the prevalence and unmet patient needs associated with PNH
    3. Explain the clinical markers of success in the management of PNH and their associated value
    4. Interpret the guidelines, while applying and differentiating the safety profiles of current and emerging therapeutics for PNH
    5. Understand emerging data of classes and mechanisms of drugs, with a focus on EVH, IVH, anemia, and compliance of pharmacological treatments in controlling PNH
  • Accreditation and Credit Designation Statements

    In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by Global Learning Collaborative (GLC) and TotalCME, Inc. GLC is jointly accredited by the American Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE) and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

    This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive 2.0 Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credits for learning and change.
