    Fantastic New CE Opportunity on Genetics!

    PartnersPRN presents Genetics and Bleeding Disorders: Expanding Nurses’ Proficiency a complementary CE activity provided by the University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education and the National Hemophilia Foundation.

    Program Overview

    As part of the management team at HTCs, nurses frequently spend more time with patients on an ongoing basis than any other specialist on the team, providing an opportunity to increase patients’ and families’ understanding of bleeding disorders. Although nurses are frequently involved in discussions concerning the implications of the genetics of a bleeding disorder with patients or family members, they are often not adequately educated about the science behind these disorders.

    This activity begins with Dr. Barbara Konkle’s (Puget Sound Blood Center) presentation Genetics of Bleeding Disorders. Michelle Alabek, MS, CGC (Hemophilia Center of Western Pennsylvania) follows with Discussing the Genetics of a Bleeding Disorder. Jennifer Maahs, PNP (Indiana Hemophilia and Thrombosis Center) closes the activity with Case Studies Review.

    Target Audience

    The intended learners for this activity are nurses who are involved in the management of individuals with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders.

    Purpose

    The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to increase knowledge related to the genetics of bleeding disorders and to familiarize participants with typical information reviewed with patients (with bleeding disorders) by genetic counselors.

    Objectives

    After completing this activity, participants should be better able to:

    Summarize the underlying genetic basis for hemophilia and other, less common congenital bleeding disorders

    Outline several ways in which a congenital bleeding disorder can impact family planning and pregnancy care

    Accreditation Statement

    The University of Nebraska Medical Center College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

    This activity is provided for 1.4 contact hours under ANCC criteria.

    Thank you!

    This activity is supported by an educational grant from Biogen Idec.

    HERE’S HOW TO PARTICIPATE!

    HTC staff should login under the “Education for HTCs-By HTCs” section of the home page. All others can find this activity by signing in under “Education for All Healthcare Providers”. This activity is located in the “Genetics” category.

    This activity was held in conjunction with the National Hemophilia Foundation’s 65th Annual Meeting held October 2013. Three case studies involving patients with hemophilia with inhibitors are presented.

    Target Audience

    This activity is intended for nurses interested in the treatment and care of patients with hemophilia with inhibitors. Healthcare professionals treating such patients must stay abreast of recent clinical research and best practices among their peers in order to provide their patients with appropriate evidenced-based treatment.

    Purpose

    The purpose of this activity is to enable the learner to develop deep understanding of the etiology, treatment, and management of complex cases of hemophilia involving inhibitors that will enhance the nurses’ ability to advocate for, manage, and educate patients.

    Learning Objectives

    Upon completion of this learning activity, participants should be better able to:

    • Summarize the additional challenges encountered in the medical care of patients with hemophilia with inhibitors that create a critical need for healthcare professional to provide optimal care to these patients
    • Outline the responsibilities of nurses and physicians within an HTC in the management of patients with hemophilia

    Cardiovascular Disease in an Adult with Hemophilia

    The PartnersPRN has launched a new complimentary continuing education activity titled Cardiovascular Disease in an Adult with Hemophilia.

    Program Overview

    Thanks to the availability of clotting factor concentrates and the multidisciplinary care provided at hemophilia treatment centers (HTCs), the life expectancy of persons with hemophilia now approaches that of the general male population. But this means more individuals with hemophilia are at risk for, or are experiencing, age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease.

    Using a clinical scenario that is becoming more common at HTCs, this interactive online learning activity reviews the prevalence of cardiovascular disease among individuals with hemophilia and summarizes recommendations from HTCs across the world that are experienced in managing such patients.
