Human Cell and Tissue Based Products – Patient Education
Stem cells are unspecialized cells, that are the basic cell type for all tissues in the body. Regenerative Medicine clinicians use stem cells and products derived from them in the treatment of cancer, eye conditions, orthopedic injuries, diabetic wound healing and many other afflictions. In many cases, stem cell tissue products have been shown to be less invasive, cost effective, and result in improved outcomes over alternative treatments. The most promising thing about the therapy is the healing potential for patients with chronic pain and difficult-to-heal injuries, all without medications or risky reconstructive surgeries.
The stem cell tissue product market is established and expected to grow 8.8% per year to an estimated global value of $16 billion by 2023. These products are being used every day by providers across the country to treat patients in a variety of applications. A multitude of research studies are being conducted to support current applications and to discover new therapies. Yet there is a general lack of standardized, accessible education. Providers and patients are left on their own to search for information that supports the use of these products.
The goal of this course is to provide patients knowledge of the:
- Science behind Human Cells and Tissue Products (HCT/Ps).
- State of the therapy and use in patients.
- Important vocabulary and messaging.
- Wide range of peer reviewed published clinical applications.
- Role of HCT/Ps in diabetic ulcer and chronic wound healing.
- The possible risks and complications of therapy.
- Up to date research.
- FDA regulatory rules and information.
Patients who complete the course will have the knowledge of HCT/P therapy that is an essential component to determining the course of their treatment.
Knowledge is the key ingredient to you becoming an active participant in your health.
This course is presented using a cutting edge “Virtual Classroom” that can be accessed 24/7/365 on any device connected to the internet on any network with no special applications or software needed.
