The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) Compendium of Assessment Tools—found on the WFH eLearning Platform—is an invaluable resource for researchers and healthcare professionals. A summary of standardized outcome assessment tools suitable for use in hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, the compendium provides practical reviews of measures of physical status (joint health) and functional ability, as well as bleeding symptoms that can be used to inform best practices and facilitate research using comparable methods. Many of these tools have been developed by groups comprised of international experts, and have been tested in a variety of settings.
The Compendium of Assessment Tools is divided into two, easy-to-navigate sections (see Table):
- Functional and Physical Examination Tools
- Bleeding Assessment Tools
