Benign hematology consultations constitute a sizable proportion of the evaluation requests in traditional hematology/oncology practices. There is a need for physicians/pediatricians with adequate training, experience, interest, and expertise in assessing and treating patients with these disorders. Some hematologic issues are complex and require in-person histories and examinations, whereas others can be handled with advice electronically after a thorough chart review. To improve the quality of the care provided to these patients, the EHA-SWG Scientific Meeting “the Blood and the Child - New Insights in Pediatric Benign Hematology” was created. During this three-day meeting, participants will focus on red blood cells and its diseases, iron metabolism defects, granulocyte and constitutional failure syndromes, thrombocytopenias and platelet function disorders, bleeding and thrombosis and transfusion medicine.
