The National Hemophilia Foundation is making available a self-learning guide for hemophilia healthcare providers. Foundations: A Comprehensive Approach to Hemophilia Care was developed and published in 2009 by the Division of Blood Disorders, National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The booklet is a 2nd edition; it was first published in 1996.
Foundations was created to enhance the knowledge base and skills of new healthcare providers to patients with hemophilia. When combined with continuing education and clinical practice, it is expected to improve hemophilia patient care. The booklet includes four education modules: “Introduction to Hemophilia”; “Bleeding Episodes”; “Complications of Hemophilia”; and “Psychosocial Implications of Hemophilia.”
The guide was developed in partnership with the CDC Foundation, through a grant from Baxter Healthcare Corporation.
