CDC Webinar: Understanding the Psychosocial Factors & Mental Health of Blood Clot Patients

CDC Webinar: Understanding the Psychosocial Factors & Mental Health of Blood Clot Patients

September 28, 2023
2:00 pm

Did you know that about half of all patients who experience a blood clot also have a decreased quality of life as a result?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Division of Blood Disorders is offering a free webinar addressing this topic on Sept. 28 at 2 p.m. ET.

Dr. Rachel Rosovsky will discuss results from a study she conducted in collaboration with the National Blood Clot Alliance. The findings of the CLUES (a Critical Look at Understanding the Emotional Suffering of Blood Clot Survivors) study can help guide future patient care, education, and research.

Dr. Jeffrey Kline will address the importance of empathy and the need for emergency department providers to be aware of biases that might distract them from recognizing the need to test for a pulmonary embolism.

This webinar is open to healthcare providers, pharmacists, public health researchers, and anyone with an interest in blood clots.

Learning objectives:

  1. Describe why patient-centered outcomes are important during VTE care.
  2. Describe how to use empathy to positively affect VTE patient care.
  3. List an “always” and “never” statement to make to a patient with newly diagnosed VTE.
