The National Blood Clot Alliance, in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, recently kicked off the second phase of our widely acclaimed Stop the Clot, Spread the Word™ campaign, with an important focus on blood clot risk reduction among hospitalized patients.
These new campaign materials encourage people headed to the hospital or just returning home from a hospital stay to ask themselves one potentially life-saving question: What is the plan for blood clot prevention surrounding my hospital stay?
You can see all of the Stop the Clot, Spread the Word™ collateral focused on hospitalization and blood clot risks at www.stoptheclot.org/spreadtheword/hospitalization.
