Data Released at an International Stem Cell Meeting Highlights Effectiveness of New Patient Education System Developed to Support Federal and State Guidelines on Cord Blood Education
Date:9/23/2009

BALTIMORE, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite significant efforts by government agencies, consumer advocacy groups and industry to educate expecting parents about the medical significance of cord blood stem cells and the options for preserving them, three out of every four pregnant women still consider themselves only "minimally informed." However, data presented at an international meeting on stem cell science and policy found that a proprietary, web-based education system developed by Cord Blood Registry could be an effective and efficient method for improving awareness about all cord blood preservation options. In a survey of individuals who completed the education program, 93 percent indicated the program increased their knowledge and 95 percent indicated they were satisfied with the program overall.

"The goal of this cord blood education program is to help physicians, and other labor and delivery specialists, provide expecting parents with scientifically-accurate information in a compelling format so they can make an informed choice about the options for preserving their newborn's cord blood stem cells," said Heather Brown, MS, CGC, vice president scientific & medical affairs at Cord Blood Registry. "This Web-based system offers many advantages in that it is accessible at any time of day, it's easily shared with spouses and other family members, and can provide documentation of the patient's education and informed choice, especially where public policy encourages or requires education."
