Improving health outcomes requires a multifaceted approach and education--of both patient and health care professional--is a key component in supporting a comprehensive care model. Clot Connect presents a unique opportunity to address an unmet need.
For patients, it means empowering them with knowledge about their condition and treatment so they can be active partners in their health care, resulting in better and safer treatment, greater satisfaction and an improved quality of life.
For health care professionals, it means providing them with the information and resources they need to confidently and consistently provide quality care to patients who have experienced venous thromboembolism.
Clot Connect is pleased with the successes of the past year, but realize there is far more to do. We look forward to continuing to meet the educational needs of patients and health care professionals.
