Through advances in treatment, people with hemophilia are enjoying longer lives. Aging can bring new health concerns such as declining physical and cognitive function, bone loss, and cardiovascular disease. Aging with hemophilia presents unique challenges that require attention by hemophilia providers and treatment centers to successfully support people with hemophilia as they transition through later stages of life.
In this presentation, Dr. Kempton will discuss comorbidities that are either unique to or more common in people with hemophilia, as well as common challenges of aging that may require special attention in the hemophilia population.
- Describe complications of hemophilia that occur with aging.
- Understand the impact of hemophilia on health concerns such as declining physical and cognitive function, bone loss, and cardiovascular disease.
- Describe how aging may impact hemophilia care and the role of the treatment center in supporting aging transition.
This webinar is free and open to healthcare providers, pharmacists, and public health researchers who desire more information about hemophilia. Advance registration is required, and the number of attendees is limited.
