About the programme

This programme will provide you with an understanding of the clinical definition of anaemia, knowledge of the body’s normal processes for red blood cell production, the inflammatory process, where things go wrong to cause anaemia, and why. It will also provide you with an understanding of the key interventions for identifying and managing anaemia in primary care with case studies relevant to clinical practice.

Primary and secondary audiences

Primarily aimed at independent practitioners working in primary care, but appropriate for all healthcare professionals, in any capacity, managing patients with chronic disease who have, or are at risk of, anaemia.
