Educational CME/CNE Opportunities
To ensure advanced care for persons with bleeding disorders throughout the country, the IHTC established the Partners in Bleeding Disorders Education Programs in 1996. It has run continuously since inception, making it the longest-running curriculum-based national bleeding disorders educational program. Partners provides education for HTC and non-HTC (hemophilia treatment center) medical providers on bleeding and thrombotic disorders. Physicians, nurses and other health care providers who treat persons with bleeding or clotting disorders can access training from any location, at any time. Non-HTC providers can access free on-demand learning modules via the Partners PRN open access site at www.partnersprn.org. The dynamic, web-based system allows flexibility for content revision, expansion, and growth as participants’ needs change. The Partners PRN website offers continuing education opportunities free of charge for nurses, social workers, physical therapists, and physicians.
