This first eLearning module of the Treatment Products program explains how blood clots, how  clotting factors work together in the coagulation cascade, what goes wrong in the case of factor deficiency, and how factor replacement therapy works by correcting this. Illustrations and interactive features make this complex content easy to follow while the glossary and linked resources provide more in-depth explanations. Fun quizzes and progress checks allow the learner to assess their understanding, and point them back to specific sections for re-study if necessary.
