Anaemia is often overlooked as its symptoms – shortness of breath, palpitations, headache and dizziness, for example – can be put down to a range of other conditions.
We are therefore pleased to have collaborated with the Anaemia Nurse Specialist Association to produce our latest online learning units. The two units, Anaemia of Chronic Disease and Anaemia in Chronic Kidney Disease, which are free to Nursing Times subscribers, will improve your understanding of anaemia in chronic disease.
The Anaemia Nurse Specialist Association, which is dedicated to advancing the provision of anaemia services, is generously subsidising these online learning units so each one can be done at a cost of £5, for those who are not yet subscribers.
Anaemia is a common condition that can cause additional problems for those with chronic disease and managing it effectively can make a significant difference to these patients.
These two learning units will teach you how to diagnose anaemia in chronic disease; about treatment options for anaemia, including the role and suitability of different forms of iron therapy; why anaemia complicates the management of chronic disease; and how to manage patients with anaemia and chronic disease.
