The ASH-SAP is designed for self-directed learning and review through utilization of a textbook with case studies, key points, graphics, and glossaries. The activity is self-paced. Learners review and study the materials and then complete related multiple-choice questions with rationales for self-assessment. Extensive bibliographies are provided in the textbook as sources of information and for future reference.
The ASH-SAP is designed for self-directed learning and review through utilization of a textbook with case studies, key points, graphics, and glossaries. The activity is self-paced. Learners review and study the materials and then complete related multiple-choice questions in a separate question and answer book for self-assessment; the question and answer book also provides rationales for the answers for additional review and self-reflection. Extensive bibliographies are provided in the textbook as sources of information and for future reference.
The ASH-SAP, Seventh Edition, is available in a variety of reading and testing formats to best suit your learning and certification needs. All formats contain the following:
- Full-color text that contains the latest advancements in hematology
- Additional case studies within the text to further illustrate and emphasize the clinical applications of core knowledge
- Access to the companion website that contains the information from the printed text but adds an interactive element, allowing users to move back and forth between questions and critiques, chapter text, and illustrative slides
The online material contains the full content of the printed book presented in a searchable format with hyperlinks to other educational resources, including Hematology, the ASH Education Program, and the ASH Image Bank. Access to the online version is included with the purchase price of the print package. The printed question and answer book is available only with the print package.
This activity is supported by educational funding provided by Pharmacyclics and Seattle Genetics.
The ASH-SAP is a high-quality educational product offering up-to-date information in the field of hematology for hematologists, medical oncologists, internists, pediatricians, and hematology-oncology fellows and trainees.
The self-assessment program’s goals are to provide timely clinical updates on new developments in hematology, to help practicing physicians prepare for recertification, and to serve as a tool for board review.
Upon completion of the ASH-SAP, Seventh Edition, the learner will be able to achieve the following learning objectives corresponding to the six online tests:
1. Laboratory Hematology and Cellular Therapy (16 credits)
a. Define the properties and methods of identification of hematopoietic stem cells.
b. Develop an appropriate testing algorithm for patients with cytopenias.
c. Develop risk stratification for patients for the appropriate referral for hematopoietic stem cell therapy.
2. Consultative Hematology (6 credits)
a. Apply up-to-date diagnostic and management techniques for bleeding disorders in women.
b. Evaluate and treat hematologic complications of pregnancy.
c. Address common hematologic consultative questions in surgical, solid organ transplant, pediatric patients; and hematologic complications of non-hematologic diseases.
3. Anemia, Iron Physiology, and Iron Disorders (11 credits)
a. Describe diagnostic approaches to and management of a patient with anemia.
b. Describe iron physiology and the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of iron disorders.
4. Thrombosis and Hemostasis (11 credits)
a. Evaluate and manage a patient with a bleeding diathesis using appropriate diagnostic testing and therapeutics.
b. Develop an appropriate diagnostic and management strategy for a patient with venous thromboembolism.
c. Describe the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and diagnosis of inherited and acquired platelet disorders.
5. Myeloid Diseases (16 credits)
a. Determine the most appropriate diagnostic strategy, including molecular testing for a patient with a suspected or newly diagnosed myeloid disorder.
b. Choose optimal risk-stratified therapy for myeloid neoplasms and for congenital marrow failure syndromes.
6. Lymphoid Disorders (15 credits)
a. Evaluate a patient with a suspected lymphoid neoplasm using appropriate diagnostic and staging studies.
