    Hemophilia in History I: Early Accounts and Interventions includes discussion of the historical figures and events in early conceptions of hemophilia as a heritable bleeding diathesis, the first models of coagulation, unproven attempts to treat the condition, the appearance of hemophilia in the royal families of Europe, and the discoveries that led to our modern conception of and treatment products for hemophilia.

    Hemophilia in History II: Factor Concentrates and Foundations of Comprehensive Care includes discussion of the early development and evolution of clotting factor concentrates, the infectious disease contamination of the U.S. blood supply and its toll on the hemophilia community, as well as legislation that passed in the wake of the hepatitis and HIV epidemics. The activity also examines the hemophilia treatment center model of care. Finally, the module discusses the role of a safe blood supply, care from HTCs, and use of prophylactic therapy in prolonging life expectancy and enabling persons with hemophilia to lead increasingly normal lives.

    Knowledge gained from these activities is expected to enhance compassion of hemophilia providers toward patients and to facilitate high quality care. Each module features an interactive timeline that allows you to explore the history of hemophilia at your own pace!
