About Comprehensive Care
- Focuses on the physical, emotional, social, educational, financial and workplace impact of bleeding disorders on the person and family through a multidisciplinary team who coordinates care.
- The team includes trained physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, dentists, genetic counselors, nutritionists, and educational consultants.
- The comprehensive care team collaborates closely with the patient’s medical home (primary care provider) within their community.
- Studies have shown that patients with inherited bleeding disorders who have their care coordinated through a comprehensive bleeding disorder center live longer and healthier lives than those who receive care from a hematologist alone.
