$40.00

Contact Hours (Points): 3

This self-study course is designed to provide a brief review of the etiology, epidemiology, pathology, clinical findings, and laboratory diagnosis of thalassemias in general. More specifically, this course will provide a thorough review of each of these components as they relate to thalassemias and thalassemic syndromes other than alpha and beta thalassemias. The goal is to review basic concepts related to normal hemoglobin and a disease that impacts hemoglobin: thalassemia. Specifically, readers will gain a better understanding of the pathogenesis, clinical findings, laboratory findings, etc. related to a group thalassemia conditions that are not classified as alpha or beta thalassemias. The target audience is laboratory professionals that need a refresher course in thalassemias, those who may be retraining or cross-training in a hematology laboratory, students, or those who are interested in learning more about the topic.
