Annie Young, Professor of Nursing at the University of Warwick and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire had the following comments about QualityCare™:

QualityCare™ is a clear and well illustrated website, developed by LEO Pharma, elucidating the many aspects of cancer-associated thrombosis.

Communication about cancer and thrombosis is the golden key: QualityCare™ does this wonderfully well. It cuts straight to the chase – striving to increase awareness of the link between cancer and clots, to highlight the warning signs of both DVT and PE and to discuss the prevention of a clot. The website conveys person-centred care, and the highlight for me is the video, ‘Blood Clots, Cancer and You’, which is well executed and very accessible.

QualityCare™ has the potential to make a huge difference to patients’ understanding of the various clinical aspects of thrombosis and to their care.
