The 2nd Annual UC San Diego Essentials and Advances in Apheresis Therapies is a 2½-day multidisciplinary conference to be held February 27 - March 1, 2014. This course is designed for physicians, nurses and other professionals interested in therapeutic apheresis, including both established practitioners and those embarking on a new apheresis service.
Recognized leaders from around the country will lead both didactic sessions and interactive discussions. The content is aimed at nephrologists, hematologists, clinical pathologists, blood bankers, other medical specialists and nurses, and will cover comprehensive reviews of the essentials plus selected advanced topics.
Fundamentals will comprise basic principles, procedures, prescribing, patient management, care of specific populations and apheresis service administration. Updates on disease indications will be supplemented by case studies. In-depth reviews by experts will include scientific advances in the understanding of selected diseases and innovations in apheresis techniques. The popular small group workshops, led by experienced practitioners, will again offer attendees a unique hands-on opportunity to study various techniques and machines used in therapeutic apheresis.
