The Hemophilia Outreach Center welcomes every opportunity to educate other healthcare professionals about bleeding disorders and the experiences they may face when caring for a patient with a diagnosis or bleeding symptoms. We are willing to tailor each outreach initiative specific to a facility’s learning objectives. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Hemophilia Outreach Center is always looking to partner with facilities whom we coordinate care with. We have the ability to create and accredit ACCME & ANCC lectures that are specific to care for individuals with a bleeding disorder. We have done ACCME & ANCC lectures with Bellin hospital in the past such as: Hemophilia & von Willebrand’s Disease Basics & Hemophilia and von Willebrand Disease: Background and Perinatal Issues.
Training the next generation- HOC partners with a number of local nursing colleges to educate future nurses about bleeding disorders and the experiences they may face once they join the workforce.
For patient safety, clinical competence is key for all nurses, yet it can be difficult to attain training when it comes to diseases that are seen infrequently. Blood disorders are an example of a low-frequency disease process in our patient population. That’s where the Hemophilia Outreach Center (HOC) in Green Bay comes in. The HOC has a longstanding history of providing valuable presentations about bleeding disorders to nursing students at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. As a community-based clinic with a comprehensive model, the HOC works with patients from newborns to the elderly. Their presentations offer both lifespan education and health promotion awareness for future nurses. We hope this partnership continues for years to come, both to enhance nursing students’ educational opportunities and to ensure the safe care of patients with bleeding disorders in hospital, clinic or long-term care settings. Thank you, HOC, for providing this uniquely valuable education.
