Partners Module Offers a Primer for Nurses Interested in Clinical Research

The Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Program recently relaunched an educational activity focused on clinical research at hemophilia treatment centers (HTCs) entitled “The Basics of Research at Hemophilia Treatment Centers.” The purpose of the module is to enable learners who care for patients with bleeding disorders to participate in research, interpret, and apply specialty protocols and outcome findings effectively.

The target audience for this activity includes nurses and other healthcare professionals at HTCs conducting or interested in conducting clinical research. Also welcome are new nurses at hemophilia treatment centers who have no previous research experience.

The faculty for this module includes:

  • Madeline Cantini, BSN, RN, CCRC
  • James E. Munn, RN-BC, BS, BSN, MS
  • Susan C. Zappa, ADN, RN-BC, CPN

“The Basics of Research at Hemophilia Treatment Centers” is provided for 1.0 contact hours under American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) criteria. The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the ANCC’s Commission on Accreditation.

The activity is available until 5pm Eastern Time, March 3, 2018.

Established in 1996, the Partners Program promotes excellence in care through education created by and for the federally recognized Hemophilia Treatment Center Network and providers from a variety of disciplines that serve patients with bleeding and other coagulation disorders. The program is a collaborative initiative of the Indiana Hemophilia & Thrombosis Center, NHF and the Hemophilia Foundation of Michigan. Funding to support the Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Program is provided through an unrestricted educational grant from Shire.
