This activity, “An Introduction to the Recognition, Appropriate Diagnosis, and Timely Management of VWD and other Bleeding Disorders among Women in Non-Hematology Health Care Settings,” is the second module in a three-part series entitled Improving Outcomes for von Willebrand Disease and Other Bleeding Disorders in Non-Hematology Health Care Settings. Each webinar in this series has been designed to better educate healthcare providers who do not specialize in hematology. NHF encourages primary care physicians, obstetricians/gynecologists, nurses/nurse practitioners, dentists and other allied professionals to take advantage of this learning opportunity.
In addition, the education will be particularly valuable to those providers who may practice outside the hemophilia treatment center network.
This webinar is jointly provided by NHF, Impact Education and the Postgraduate Institute for Medicine. The content presented in this program was developed through the efforts of four highly-regarded physicians, including Veronica H. Flood, MD, Robert F. Sidonio, Jr. MD, MSc., Charletta Ayers, MD, MPH and Gloria A. Bachmann, MD.
This activity was originally supported by an independent grant from Shire as well as cooperative agreement number NU27 DD001154 funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
