Study Group Minutes
Mission and Goals
The mission of the Hemostasis Study Group is to provide guidance and guidelines to healthcare providers regarding bleeding and clotting complications in cancer patients from diagnosis to the end of life. The goals of the group are (1) an increased awareness of abnormalities in the coagulation system at the time of cancer diagnosis, through treatment, and at the end of life, and (2) an increased availability of evidence-based treatment to patients with bleeding or clotting complications during treatment and at the end of life. To these ends, the Group has set the following objectives:
The Clinical Course of Venous Thromboembolism May Differ With Cancer Site
Incidental Venous Thromboembolism in Cancer Patients on Routine CT Scans
Romiplostim for the Management of Chemotherapy-Induced Thrombocytopenia
Outpatient Management of Pulmonary Embolism in Cancer
2017 Annual Meeting Workshop, June 22, Washington, DC
This workshop will be offered jointly by the following MASCC Study Groups: Education; Hemostasis.
