Program Description: 

Through its educational arm, the ISTH Academy, the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) has begun hosting a series of webinars on practical thrombosis and haemostasis issues that scientists and physicians frequently confront. These webinars will allot time for participants to ask questions and will cover the latest information on relevant topics.

Sam SchulmanThe Coagulation Cascade

The coagulation cascade is not an isolated phenomenon but takes place on phospholipid bilayers of cell surfaces. It is also an interplay with microparticles, natural inhibitors vascular walls and the inflammatory system.

Diane Nugent - Coagulation Disorders

Rare clotting disorders go undiagnosed for years and present a challenge for the busy practitioner as the pathway to final diagnosis requires time to take a thorough family and personal history, as well as a local reference laboratory with capability to go beyond baseline coagulation screen.  This presentation will cover some of the signs and symptoms of the more "common" rare disorders, and provide information on specific diagnostic and therapeutic options.  

Accreditation Statement
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The Medical College of Wisconsin and International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis. The Medical College of Wisconsin is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
 
Designation of Credit Statement:
The Medical College of Wisconsin designates this live activity for a maximum of 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
