International Women’s Day webinar | March 8 2022


Listen to this 90-minute webinar presented on March 8, 2022, to learn about women and girls with bleeding disorders.

The webinar is a joint collaboration between the WFH Women and Girls with Bleeding Disorders (WGBD) committee and the WFH von Willebrand Disease (VWD) and Rare Bleeding Disorders (RBD) committee. Speakers will include Dawn Rotellini (U.S.A), Jameela Sathar, MD (Malaysia); Mei Lin Hoo, MD (Malaysia); Paula James, MD (Canada); Roshni Kulkarni, MD (U.S.A); Lauren Phillips (New Zealand); Anupama Pattiyeri (India); Cassie Osejo (Panama) and Jo Yi Chow (Malaysia).

Participants will learn more about abnormal period bleeding, the treatment options available to them, and, most importantly, when they should seek help. Healthcare practitioners will be able better identify and diagnose women living with bleeding disorders by making the link between abnormal period bleeding and bleeding disorders. They’ll learn about the importance of collaboration between gynecologists and hematologists and/or other treating clinicians. There will also be a panel discussion on period poverty and its impact on quality of life.

Before administering any products, the WFH urges patients to check dosages with a physician or hemophilia centre staff, and to consult the pharmaceutical company’s printed instructions.
