talking to your patients about the total impact of hereditary angioedema
You strive to limit the impact of hereditary angioedema (HAE) on your patients. But how forthcoming are your patients on all the ways HAE affects them? Many patients may not even realise just how pervasive the negative impact of HAE can become.1
To help assess the full impact of their HAE, consider asking your patients:
How often do you worry about or plan around the unpredictability of a future attack?
Have you limited your travel due to fear of an attack?
Have you avoided social plans and other activities?
Have you missed opportunities for educational or professional development?
Share these questions with your patients to help them identify areas in their lives where they may be struggling due to HAE.
