At the conclusion of this Webinar, participants were able to:
  • Understand the importance of, and apply to practice, assessing and monitoring patients for the identification of FNAIT
  • Discuss and describe the potential maternal and fetal consequences of FNAIT and the considerations professionals must address in making decisions regarding management
  • Describe new, effective approaches to diagnosis, testing, assessment in order to improve fetal, neonatal and maternal outcomes
  • Describe the ways intersection of obstetrics and hematology augments management
