Medscape Activity Available for Nurses

September 28, 2016

“Hot Topics in Hemophilia Nursing” is the latest educational opportunity to become available from Medscape. This activity is intended for nurses, advanced practice nurses and other healthcare professionals who treat patients with hemophilia. It is part of the online series, Clinical Advances in Hemophilia: Management for Life. The purpose of the program is to increase the knowledge, skills and competence of clinicians in providing individualized management of hemophilia.

The goal of this activity is to discuss some of the main challenges related to caring for patients with hemophilia across the life span.

Upon completion of this activity, participants will:

  1. Identify nursing best practice in the management of challenging patients, such as those with poor bleeding control or with inhibitors
  2. Review nursing best practice in using laboratory tests to optimize treatment outcomes in hemophilia

The series is presented through a strategic collaboration between the National Hemophilia Foundation and Medscape Education Hematology, and supported by an independent educational grant from Biogen. After completing the activities within this program, available for one year from their release date, those eligible may receive free continuing education (CE) or continuing medical education (CME) credits.
