Having an abnormal haemoglobin result is a common occurrence in General Practice. It can often be frustrating trying to manage an abnormal haemoglobin amidst polypharmacy and multi-morbidity. We will explore how to work through examples of abnormal haemoglobin results with multiple factors through case-based discussions to identify how to effectively investigate and manage patient outcomes.
