What’s New in Acquired Hemophilia & Rare Bleeding Disorders: Pearls for the Emergency Physician

Tuesday, March 16th, 2021 @ 1:00pm EST

This is an area that is fraught with uncertainty and potential for errors.  Unexplained bleeding (not related to anti-coagulant therapy) for both known and unknown bleeding disorders represent a diagnostic and management challenge for ED physicians.

At this end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Confidently recognize and initiate appropriate investigations in a patient with unusual bleeding or unexplained coagulation abnormalities
  • Manage acute bleeding and pre-procedural treatment for patients with rare bleeding disorders and rare presentations of rare bleeding disorders
  • Be aware of new therapeutic agents for treatment of hemophilia and how patient care plans can improve care delivery for patients with rare bleeding disorders in the ED setting.

This Group Learning program has been certified by the College of Family Physicians of Canada  and the Ontario Chapter for up to 1.00 Mainpro+ credit.  

This webinar is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and approved by Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians.  You may claim a maximum of 1 hour(credits are automatically calculated).

Immune-related Adverse Events of Immune Checkpoint Inhibitors: What Emergency Physicians Need to Know

Thursday, March 25, 2021 @ 1:00pm EST

Immune checkpoint inhibitors are becoming more common in the treatment of many malignancies, including, melanoma, lung, and colorectal cancer.

As the use of immune checkpoint inhibitors increases, EDs are seeing increasing numbers of patients presenting with immune-related adverse events (IRAE) from these agents which can mimic other conditions.  Failure to recognize and treat these in a timely manner can lead to avoidable poor patient outcomes.

At this end of this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify commonly used immune checkpoint inhibitors and understand their basic pathophysiology
  • Recognize and diagnose common and rare presentations of checkpoint inhibitor toxicity
  • Differentiate toxicity-related pneumonitis from COVID-19-related pneumonitis
  • Recognize when steroid treatment is appropriate
  • Implement and use diagnostic and treatment algorithms as well as patient care plans in the ED setting.

This Group Learning program has been reviewed by the College of Family Physicians of Canada and is awaiting final certification by the College’s Ontario Chapter.

This webinar is an Accredited Group Learning Activity (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada and approved by Canadian Association of Emergency Physicians.  You may claim a maximum of 1 hour (credits are automatically calculated).
