Hemophilia is a life-long disorder that occurs in 1 out of 5,032 live male births in the United States. An individual lives each day of his life with the complications and issues that result from bleeding or treating the disorder.

This course will help hemophilia treatment center staff to promote a family-centered approach in the diagnosis, assessment, and management of hemophilia and in addressing potential complications from hemophilia and its treatment.

One Family’s Response

Finding out that our son has hemophilia was one of the scariest and most difficult times in our lives. Neither of us knew this disease was in our family! Knowing that this is something that we’ve passed on to our son is especially hard. It has been four months since the diagnosis, and we are slowly coming to terms with what our life will be, but we know there’s a rough road ahead.
