Tackling skin and thrombotic conditions
The following document outlines the proposed text for the Tackling skin and thrombotic conditions page, which has been created as part of the LEO Pharma UK/IE corporate website redevelopment. Multimedia elements of the page, such as video and images, can be found in the Content and Structure Plan, Content Calendar and Content Development Capabilities List.
LEO Pharma is a world leader in dermatological (skin) and thrombotic (blood clot) care, meeting unmet medical needs which benefit millions of people around the world. With a commitment to undertake innovative research and a pledge to always have people at the heart of everything we do, we strive to improve lives through high ethical standards and empowering people with these conditions to have a better quality of life.
Through listening to those that we are committed to serving, we can better support people by delivering holistic solutions that go beyond medical fundamentals. After over a century of innovative and ethical research, we understand that tackling life-altering and life-threatening conditions requires a multi-disciplinary approach, including recognising the importance of actively listening to the first-hand experiences of people who live with the conditions that we aim to treat. As part of this, the Voices in Partnership (ViP) Programme facilitates people partnering with LEO Pharma UK/IE in order give vital insights into the conditions that they live with, helping us to develop solutions together. The ViP programme originally had a focus on psoriasis only, but its positive impact has led to the programme now being widened to people living with thrombosis.
LEO is proud of our disease awareness and support programmes that help empower people to have the confidence to take control of their conditions. QualityCare™ offers free and confidential and support to people living with psoriasis and CancerClot™ is a similar platform designed specifically for those affected by cancer associated thrombosis (CAT).
“Due to the chronic nature of psoriasis many of our patients need more ongoing support than we can provide in a typical 10 minute consultation. I always recommend QualityCare™ to my patients and colleagues - an excellent holistic resource developed with healthcare and patient experts, which provides practical information and tools for self-management to help them live well and ultimately drive better outcomes.”
Dr Sandra N. Minor FRCP, Consultant Dermatologist, Chichester Nuffield Hospital and Sussex Community Dermatology Service
“CancerClot™ is a superbly illustrated website for patients and their carers elucidating the many aspects of Cancer-associated Thrombosis (CAT). Communication about cancer and thrombosis is the golden key: CancerClot™ does this wonderfully well and has the potential to make a huge difference to patients understanding of CAT and to their overall care.”
