ERN-EuroBloodNet Topic on Focus: Constitutional thrombocytopenia

ERN-EuroBloodNet Topic on Focus on Constitutional Thrombocytopenia is an accredited European online educational program targeting health professionals organized by the ERN-EuroBloodNet and in partnership with the CRPP (Frence Reference Center for Inherited Platelet Disorders) and the Filière MHEMO (French Constitutional Bleeding Disorders Network).

The program consists of a cycle of webinars focused on Constitutional Thrombocytopenia developed in collaboration with three experts, Prof. Marie-Christine Alessi and Dr. Paul Saultier from Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Marseille (member of the ERN) and Dr. Mathieu Fiore from CHU Bordeaux.

The main objective of this program is to disseminate up-to-date knowledge among interested haematologists, internists, paediatricians, or other healthcare providers to give visibility to cutting-edge advances in the field of Consitutional Thrombocytopenia. This group of rare diseases is characterized by thrombocytopenia associated with a variable bleeding tendency. Some of these diseases are also associated with a predisposition to developing serious additional illnesses (e.g. haematological malignancies, renal impairment, deafness, immune deficiency). There is a high need for education addressing pathophysiology and molecular basis, diagnosis, complications, and treatments of this group of disorders.
