Thalassaemia International Federation Publications
The 4th Edition of TIF Guidelines for The Management of TDT
TIF, its Board of Directors and its International Scientific Advisory Board proudly present the 4th Edition of the Federation’s most prestigious and renowned publication, the TIF Guidelines for The Management of Transfusion- Dependent Thalassaemia (TDT).
Since 1999, when the very first edition was originally released as part of the Federation’s Educational Programme, the TIF Guidelines have been adopted and used extensively by academics, researchers and healthcare professionals all over the world as the only evidence-based reference text concerning the treatment of patients with TDT.
The newly launched edition includes brand new chapters on the recently approved modalities of patient treatment, the value of patient engagement at the decision-making level, the Reference Centres’ contribution to patient care, and much more.
We are confident that these Guidelines will offer once again valuable information to all allied physicians involved in the treatment of patients with this blood disorder and will consequently benefit the global thalassaemia community many times over.
