Full access to in-depth resources at Congress

The World Federation of Hemophilia (WFH) 2018 World Congress is an event with much to offer participants. It will be hosted in Glasgow, a warm and inviting city, and will feature a rich program of engaging presentations, and ample opportunity to network with colleagues.

The Congress is also a great way for participants to gain exclusive access to a wealth of resources—including print publications that can be taken home after Congress. Here are some highlights of what participants can expect to enjoy at the WFH 2018 World Congress in Glasgow, Scotland, this May.

Professional development sessions and workshops           

Be part of the professional development sessions, workshops and information exchanges that will expand the knowledge and experience of participants at this year’s Congress. Here are three sessions of note:

  • “Women and Bleeding Disorders” will cover the issues that impact women in our community, including changes in factor levels in pregnancy and appropriate hemostatic treatment.
  • “Advocating for Better Outcomes – Using Data to Build the Evidence Base” will show how data collection initiatives are building an evidence base that will support advocacy, improve access to care and enhance the clinical management of patients.
  • “Gene Therapy for Haemophilia: What, Why, How, When, Who, and Where?” will go in depth into the emerging field of gene therapy—a research area that holds great promise for our field.

WFH resource centre

The WFH Resource Centre will offer participants a wealth of educational materials, addressing a wide variety of topics important to the bleeding disorders community. Well-located in the exhibit hall, it’s a great place to find insightful resources in six languages, check out the expanding WFH eLearning Platform and its online resources, and chat with like-minded people.

WFH smartphone app

Anyone with a smartphone or tablet will be able to use the WFH app to get the most out of their Congress experience this May. The mobile app allows you to browse the complete scientific program by day and topic, create your own personal program, connect with other event attendees, view abstracts and e-posters, and even view the Congress floor plans.

WFH eLearning Platform

Accessible from your computer or mobile device, the WFH eLearning platform offers a wealth of information for the bleeding disorders community. Download PDFs of the extensive WFH collection of educational resources, or visit new online resources, including interactive learning modules, panel discussion videos, and much more.
