CDC Awards NATT Funding to Improve Blood Clot Awareness
Date:9/26/2007

surrounding blood clots and clotting disorders. The general theme from this meeting is the publication of "Call-to-Action" this fall by the U.S. Surgeon General to improve education and awareness within the healthcare profession, as well as the general public.

These facts, combined with a serious lack of awareness among the public, constitute a significant public health problem that NATT has been battling since its inception in 2003. NATT Executive Director Alan Brownstein explained that a national initiative called "Stop-The-Clot," will now be launched. The multi-tiered program, one of two receiving funding awards from the CDC, will focus its education and awareness efforts on such objectives as:

-- Enhancement of NATT's successful patient seminars into a nationally

Stop-The-Clot Forum series

-- Establishment of a comprehensive consumer Clotting Information Resource

Center (CIRC; available via web and print mediums)

-- Collaboration with the national Hemophilia Treatment Centers, the

Thrombosis and Hemostasis Centers, and the Anticoagulation Forum

network for distribution of education materials

-- And the development of a regional chapter infrastructure.

The CDC also awarded funding for a nurses and non-physician healthcare professionals' education project that will specifically address the areas of blood clot prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management. NATT's Medical And Scientific Advisory Board (MASAB) Chairman Dr. Stephan Moll, director of the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill Thrombophilia Program, expressed his board's delight regarding the CDC awards. "I commend the CDC on their efforts to respond to this extreme health issue in such a proactive manner through funding these programs instituted by NATT," he said.

Dr. Moll noted that the healthcare professionals' education project is deemed an essential element in the fight against blood clots. "Improving the content
