This webinar series will educate on the epidemiology and aetiologies of anaemia in older people. Speakers will promote a pragmatic and person centred approach for managing for older patients with frailty presenting with anaemia, including clonal anaemia.

Participants will learn how to assess anaemia in older people with frailty, and how to formulate management approaches. There will be the opportunity for delegates to discuss the challenges encountered in clinical practise in the live chat during the webinar.

A CPD certificate with CPD credit will be issued to those joining the webinar live as well as those who watch the recording afterwards. Certificates will be issued 7 days after the webinar to those who watch it live and after 30 days for those that watch the recording.
