Maria Hytti works with adult patients with bleeding disorders at the North Estonia Medical Centre. She received her Bachelor’s in Science of Nursing from the Tallinn Healthcare College in January 2017, graduating Cum Laude.
She has worked in family nursing, orthopaedics, and sports medicine. Since April 2018, she works as a haematology nurse. This led to her journey in haemophilia starting in August 2019.
As a nurse practitioner, she consults patients and their families and coordinates patient visits to the multidisciplinary team. She prepares health plans for her patients, does routine check-ups, and orders consultations and various tests.
She deeply respects her patients and tries to educate them in basic healthcare, making sure they get the best care possible. One of her goals is to get nurses and other healthcare professionals more involved in patient care by disseminating knowledge on bleeding disorders and patient-individual health plans, including optimal treatment.
In October 2020, during the Baltic Haemophilia Nurses Conference, she assisted in the organisation of a 2-day international (and multilingual) hybrid conference with live speakers from 3 Baltic countries.
Currently, Maria is getting her Master’s degree in Science of Nursing at the Tallinn Healthcare College, graduating in January 2022, and is working on her thesis project on “Establishment of the Estonian national registry of patients with bleeding disorders“. When information is added to the registry, it will provide a statistical overview of patients’ health and keep track of patients’ health management by the multidisciplinary team.
