CE for Healthcare Providers

 

Activity Description

NHF promotes an integrated, comprehensive care team model that includes supporting individuals living
with a bleeding disorder with a highly qualified team of specialists. As part of our commitment to the
comprehensive care team model, annually NHF hosts a Bleeding Disorder Conference that includes
provider education divided into four distinct specialty tracks. The trainings for each track are tailored to
meet the specific educational needs of the core disciplines who deliver medical care to patients living
with a bleeding disorder, including:
1.    Medical providers (Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, and Pharmacists)
2.    Nurses
3.    Social workers
4.    Physical therapists

Target Audience

This accredited continuing education activity is designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, and physical therapists.

Educational Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participants should be better able to:

  • Describe findings from the latest research studies addressing the care of patients with bleeding disorders and how these findings translate into direct patient care
  • Identify common and pathological symptoms experienced by patients with bleeding disorders, what roles are assumed by healthcare providers and patients/caregivers, and what treatments are applied in the care of the identified symptoms
  • Utilize evidence-based treatments and patient education regarding both acute and long-term management of bleeding disorders
