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.

"HFA is excited for this opportunity to demonstrate how shared decision-making can advance patient and provider relationships."
