These guidelines for diagnosis and management of von Willebrand disease (VWD) were developed for practicing primary care and specialist clinicians—including family physicians, internists, obstetrician-gynecologists, pediatricians, and nurse-practitioners—as well as hematologists and laboratory medicine specialists.

The Full Report provides information on the causes, diagnosis and treatment of VWD. Specific topics addressed in the report include initial screening, diagnosis, and management for patients with the disorder; along with directions for future research and recommendations for training for health professionals.

The Pocket Guide which stemmed from the Full Report, and covers the same topics in less detail is ideal for health professionals to use as an on-the-go reference.
