Clinical Advances in

Hemophilia: Management for Life

Hemophilia is a chronic, complex disorder that has serious, potentially life-threatening complications and requires lifelong management. While the life expectancy of patients with hemophilia has dramatically increased over the past several decades, the hemophilia population still faces unique challenges that require appropriate use of effective strategies for prophylaxis and episodic treatment. This educational initiative presents current and emerging approaches for overcoming barriers to the optimal management of patients with hemophilia.

Supported by an independent educational grant from

Bioverativ Therapeutics

Presented through a collaboration between the National Hemophilia Foundation and Medscape.
