WASHINGTON, May 4, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hemophilia Federation of America announces a call for grant applications

to address a clinical gap with the intent to support educational initiatives addressing emergency medical events for individuals with bleeding disorders.

This collaboration supports the National Quality Forum call to action to make shared decision-making

a standard of care across the United States. HFA's mission is to advocate, educate and assist individuals with bleeding disorders, and shared decision-making is an integral component for people with bleeding disorders to advocate for their treatment and medical care.

"HFA continues to champion people with bleeding disorders by focusing on the shared decision-making process. All of HFA's research initiatives are patient-centered and patient-focused, and we strongly believe patients play an integral part in this process. At the same time, there needs to be education for all stakeholders to practice and promote shared decision-making," said Kimberly Haugstad, President and CEO of HFA. "HFA is excited for this opportunity to demonstrate how shared decision-making can advance patient and provider relationships."

This Call for Grant Notification is seeking concepts for:

  • Adoption of evidence-based recommendations for management of hemophilia A in the ER and major trauma centers
