According to the National Hemophilia Foundation, "Having a chronic disease means spending a lot of time and energy negotiating the health care system. The hematologists, nurses, psychosocial professionals and physical therapists not only help consumers with their medical care issues, but also lend tremendous emotional support. Many people with bleeding disorders use the resources of their hemophilia treatment center (HTC) for many years because the staff understands their unique needs."
The Comprehensive Visit is a chance for patients to be seen by their HTC team, to ask questions, and get one-on-one information. In fact, the National Hemophilia Foundation and the journal Blood have excellent articles on the value of comprehensive care from your HTC.
