Finding the right care team

Every case of a bleeding disorder with inhibitors is complex, so you need a comprehensive care plan and a team of specialized healthcare providers suited to your specific needs.1-3

Are there treatment centers specifically for people with bleeding disorders?

Yes. Hemophilia treatment centers (HTCs) help bleeding disorder patients and families manage life with a bleeding disorder, including those with inhibitors. HTCs provide comprehensive care, including medical care, education, and support services.1,2

The benefits of a comprehensive care plan1

In comprehensive care, a patient is first assigned a team, which varies based on the individual’s needs and the structure of that particular HTC.3 Your team of healthcare providers typically includes hematologists, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, psychologists, and, for female patients, a gynecologist. Some may also have dentists, genetic counselors, and orthopedists.1,2

It’s very important that patients being treated for a bleeding disorder are involved in every aspect of their care. The team takes into account each individual’s needs and lifestyle when planning treatment.1
