Nurses Committee - Purpose, Objectives and Goals


The purpose of the ISTH Nurses Committee is to promote, support, and sustain sharing and adoption of, evidence-based practice; thereby facilitating knowledge translation to direct patient care.

This will be provided globally through mentorship to nurses in their role to teach, coach, individualize, and intervene in applying evidence based practice to meet the unique needs of patients with disorders of hemostasis.

In addition, the Nurses Forum will support systematic evaluation and dissemination of practical and actionable standardized or targeted interventions for this unique patient population that is provided by nurses.


Share knowledge, experience, and practice standards or guidelines to standardize and improve practical and actionable knowledge translation in the discipline of nursing as it pertains to disorders of haemostasis. This knowledge sharing is critical as nurses are often isolated within their institutions resulting in widespread duplication of strategy development and limited evaluation of same.
