Join us for our monthly virtual presentation facilitated by experts in their field. Our next presentation is scheduled for
4:00 - 5:00 pm (Eastern)
TOPIC: ITP Consensus Diagnostic Portion
Presenter: Dr. Dana LeVine and Dr. Linda Kidd
Co-Chairs of the Consensus Statement panel on Diagnosis and Treatment of Immune Thrombocytopenia in Dogs and Cats will present an overview of key diagnostic P(E)CO format questions (Patient population, Exposure/Evaluation, Comparator, Outcomes) focused on the workup of dogs and cats with ITP. In this session we will provide guidelines for useful tests for diagnosis of ITP and prediction of ITP disease severity. We will also summarize quantitative and qualitative evidence for comorbidities as a cause for ITP and the subsequent screening guidelines we have developed for routine ITP workup in small animal patients. All recommendations were generated by a systematic review of available primary veterinary literature and revised with an extensive Delphi process.
Each monthly presentation is no more than one hour long and covers a variety of topics we believe you will find interesting. Also, all sessions are recorded and made available in our Forums for viewing on-demand by our members at a later time.
