20147 WEBCAST: Following the Trail of Evidence in VOD Management: How Modern Risk Assessment, Diagnostic Principles, and Treatment Are Improving Care

In PeerView’s latest CME-certified onDemand activity, based on a symposium at the 2020 Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (TCT) Meetings of ASTCT and CIBMTR, experts lead a series of evidence-based “MasterClass” scientific discussions exploring the nuances of VOD risk assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. The experts also share their perspectives on several adult and pediatric patient cases designed to illustrate how clinicians can “follow the evidence” to apply new recommendations for VOD management and overcome the challenges associated with this serious post-transplant complication.
