Thalassaemia: establishing basic awareness.
Thalassaemia has until recently received little attention and consequently is not widely understood by health professionals, write Simon Dyson, Verna Davis and Rafeya Rahman. In the first of three articles they describe the illness and its treatment and the potential role for health visitors in supporting children with the condition and their families. They conclude with a brief questionnaire to test thalassaemia-awareness levels.
