Immune Thrombocytopenia:

A Numbers Game?

Tuesday, 12 July 2022

Welcome

Thank you for joining the symposium supported by Sobi™ and entitled “Immune Thrombocytopenia: A Numbers Game?” at the XXX Congress of the International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH) in London, United Kingdom on Tuesday, 12 July 2022.

Immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) is characterised by reduced platelet counts, but a lack of definitive clinical or laboratory parameters to delineate ITP means the disease is often diagnosed through exclusion of other conditions. Patients with ITP generally have a lower quality of life (QoL) relative to the general population; however, patient-reported QoL does not always correlate with the severity of the disease and the patient’s platelet count. This misalignment can present challenges for healthcare professionals (HCPs) when choosing the correct treatment for ITP. Treatment guidelines now emphasise the importance of the patient’s perspective and shared decision making (SDM) between patients and HCPs in the management of ITP. Through SDM, patients can feel more empowered and HCPs can be supported in making the correct treatment choices to manage the differing needs of patients with ITP.

The aim of the symposium is to review and discuss the management of ITP, with a focus on the patient’s journey and the current treatment options available. The expert speakers will review patient cases to discuss their experiences in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with ITP, reflecting on the patient’s QoL, platelet count, and available treatment options. There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion with the speakers.

We hope that you find this symposium engaging and conducive to stimulating discussions, and we look forward to your participation.
