Optimizing Outcomes in Iron Deficiency Anemia: Adaptive Approaches for the Ob/Gyn


Webinar Objectives:

  1. Review the epidemiology of iron deficiency anemia, examining its impact on obstetrical morbidity and mortality, and on patient quality of life.
  2. Identify patients in the OB/GYN practice setting who are at an elevated risk for developing IDA.
  3. Discuss clinically-appropriate iron studies for the diagnosis and assessment of IDA, including when to order and how to interpret results.
  4. Recognize AUB as a prominent IDA etiology, and describe how the cultural normalization of heavy menstrual bleeding (HMB) leads to under-diagnosis of IDA. 5.
  5. Using a case-based format, evaluate available iron supplementation approaches, including IV and oral modalities, and formulate individualized treatment plans for the IDA patient refractory to oral therapy.
