New Mild Hemophilia Brochure Available
 

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.

To request a single, complimentary copy, contact HANDI, NHF’s information resource center: 800.42.HANDI or handi@hemophilia.org. The bulk order price for more than one copy of “What is Mild Hemophilia?” is $1.20 for NHF members and $1.60 for nonmembers. Bulk orders may be placed by phone or by downloading an order form from the NHF Web site and faxing it to HANDI: 212.328.3799.
