Quality of life for PWH discussed in plenary

Yesterday, Deon York, Lay member, WFH Board of Directors, moderated the session “Multidisciplinary plenary: Quality of life”. The session looked at the role of pain in the life of someone with a bleeding disorder. While pain is not something people generally wish to experience, it has an essential role in making us who we are.

Lorimer Moseley discussed new understandings of pain, and how that understanding can change one’s perspectives of dealing with pain in his lecture “Is there gain to pain?”. Bhajan Singh looked at how pain influences sleep patterns. He also discussed what sleep is, how it happens, why “good” sleep is so important to being healthy, and which good habits should be promoted for better sleep.
