The Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Program recently launched a new online learning module Sports and Physical Activity in Moderate and Severe Hemophilia.
This online learning activity utilizes a brief literature review, case studies, and interactive questions to describe evolving perspectives on participation in sports and physical activity among persons with hemophilia, the benefits of participation and potential for injury in these activities, considerations in management of patients with hemophilia who participate in sports and physical activity, and selection of appropriate activities for persons with hemophilia.
The activity is intended for nurses, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and other members of the multidisciplinary hemophilia comprehensive care team employed at federally recognized U.S. Hemophilia Treatment Centers who treat patients with moderate and severe hemophilia and require enhanced knowledge of recommendations and considerations for sports and physical activity participation in these patients.
The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education is accredited with distinction as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
This activity is approved for physical therapy continuing education units (CEUs) through the California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA).

PartnersPRN announces the release of two new modules that focus on the history of hemophilia.
Hemophilia in History I: Early Accounts and Interventions includes discussion of the historical figures and events in early conceptions of hemophilia as a heritable bleeding diathesis, the first models of coagulation, unproven attempts to treat the condition, the appearance of hemophilia in the royal families of Europe, and the discoveries that led to our modern conception of and treatment products for hemophilia.
Hemophilia in History II: Factor Concentrates and Foundations of Comprehensive Care includes discussion of the early development and evolution of clotting factor concentrates, the infectious disease contamination of the U.S. blood supply and its toll on the hemophilia community, as well as legislation that passed in the wake of the hepatitis and HIV epidemics. The activity also examines the hemophilia treatment center model of care. Finally, the module discusses the role of a safe blood supply, care from HTCs, and use of prophylactic therapy in prolonging life expectancy and enabling persons with hemophilia to lead increasingly normal lives.
Knowledge gained from these activities is expected to enhance compassion of hemophilia providers toward patients and to facilitate high quality care. Each module features an interactive timeline that allows you to explore the history of hemophilia at your own pace! You do not need to view both modules in order to earn continuing nursing professional development credit!

This online learning activity targets school nurses, nurse practitioners, and other school personnel who require basic knowledge and skill to effectively practice and teach in schools attended by a student with hemophilia. This involves debunking common myths that persist about hemophilia and replacing those myths with factual information concerning the etiology, inheritance, severity, and treatment of hemophilia. It includes information on identifying prevalent locations and symptoms of bleeding in hemophilia. Finally, the activity reviews strategies that may be implemented in the school setting to promote a safe and positive learning environment for the student with hemophilia.
If you have completed this activity in the past, we invite you to view it again as the content has been updated for this release.
