Workshops for Healthcare Professionals

Each year, the WFH organizes workshops in individual countries and regions that bring together various professionals from the multidisciplinary team and members of the global bleeding disorders community to exchange ideas on the improvement of treatment and care.

These workshops include both scientific presentations and practical application, and target the following profiles:

  • Hematologists
  • Laboratory scientists/technicians
  • Physiotherapists/physiatrists/rehabilitation specialists
  • Orthopedists
  • Nurses
  • Psychologists and social workers
  • Dentists

The WFH holds conferences and general symposia, as needed. Topics can include:

  • Introduction to hemophilia, von Willebrand disease (VWD), and related bleeding disorders
