The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) debuted “What is Mild Hemophilia?,” a new consumer publication, at its 60th Annual Meeting in Denver, in November. Written in a straightforward and accessible style, the brochure was designed to help educate younger readers about the mechanisms behind coagulation, prolonged bleeding and inheritance. It provides information on common myths, tips on prevention and basic treatment options.
“What is Mild Hemophilia?” was developed by hemophilia treatment center nurses from Regions VIII and X, with support by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Cooperative Agreement. The authors are Shirley J. Bleak, RN, FNP; Maribel Johnson, RN, MA; Brenda Riske, MS, MBA, MPA; Nick Sandmeyer, RN; and Angela Stewart, RN.
