The role of the Nurses Committee is to engage the global thrombosis and hemostasis nurses community by sharing knowledge, experience, practice standards and guidelines to standardize and improve practical and actionable knowledge translation.


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.
