We will once again be offering a treatment room for the full duration of the Congress to assist patients without access to treatment and help with emergency situations related to an inherited bleeding disorder.
In order to make sure congress attendees with a bleeding disorder have the most convenient and full experience possible during the World Congress, the WFH is once again setting up a treatment room for patients who are not able to bring their own clotting factor treatment to the United States. Clotting factor concentrates have been generously donated by Baxalta, Bayer, Biogen, CSL Behring, Grifols, Novo Nordisk, Octapharma, and Pfizer. Supplies for the treatment rooms have been donated by Bleeding and Clotting Disorders Institute (Peoria, IL), Option Care, and Cascade Hemophilia Consortium.
The treatment room will be managed by the Congress host society, National Hemophilia Foundation, and staffed by volunteer nurses, specialized physicians and physiotherapists.
A limited number of wheelchairs, crutches, and walkers will also be made available. Also, please note that donated treatment products will not be offered to those patients attending from the U.S. and Canada.
