Joint Health Inhibitors Women’s Health

WHY HEALTH EDUCATION?

Are there any gaps in the bleeding disorder communities knowledge and awareness about joint health, inhibitors, and  bleeding disorders in women? Is Hemophilia Federation of America (HFA) meeting the community’s educational needs in understanding these bleeding disorder topics? That’s what HFA sought to discover with a series of surveys conducted in 2017.

Each participant who completed a survey came from HFA’s Blood Brotherhood, Blood Sisterhood and Families programs. Their information helped HFA understand components where the community had strong knowledge, areas where their were gaps in knowledge, and the challenges the participant’s face in finding the educational resources they need to understand each of the three focus areas. The information gathered in the surveys helped HFA to better target programming, to increase participation in physical activity through the joint health challenge with HFA’s member organizations, and to increase knowledge and awareness through comprehensive, interactive courses on joint health, women’s health and inhibitors in HFA’s Learning Central e-learning platform. The e-learning platform is accessible to everyone interested in learning more.

WE’RE BETTER TOGETHER!

HFA was able to identify gaps in knowledge and awareness of joint health, inhibitors and women’s health, and used that information to develop resources, services and programs to better educate the bleeding disorders community, with the hopes of preventing any future lack of knowledge and awareness and to increase access to care, diagnosis and treatment.
