Welcome to the second edition of The Count.
In this edition, we have an update on the recently updated and published International Consensus Report for the diagnosis and management of ITP, an update of emerging treatments showcased at the 2019 American Society of Hematology Conference in Orlando Florida, details on the Local Patient Meetings, plus some information around blood clots and ITP Patients.
ITP Australia recently launched local patient meetings in Brisbane and Perth. The local meetings were a huge success with 11 people joining us in Brisbane and a further seven people coming along to the Perth meeting.
The mission of ITP Australia is supporting ITP patients and carers through information and support networks. Over the next 12 months we will be adding some new and expanded initiatives to offer even more to our ITP warriors.
