This July, the NBCA e-Newsletter is focused on the power of patient stories to provide patient support. We at the National Blood Clot Alliance have seen first-hand the positive impact of providing support through sharing patient stories. We began posting stories to our website back in 2013. Today, a growing number of patients reach out to us almost daily seeking to share their stories, while at the same time a growing number of other advocacy organizations now follow this proven NBCA path. We are proud to be at the forefront of this movement. As a leader in the initiative to share patient stories with the thrombosis community, NBCA has helped to foster and nurture relationships among patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals alike. In addition, patient storytelling is one of the most successful awareness-building tools we work with to improve understanding about blood clot risk factors and signs and symptoms.
In this issue find out more about how allowing patients to share or tell their stories is crucial to healing and recovery, read the very first – and the very latest – NBCA patient story and find out how you can share your story with us.
