  • Overview

    While we don't currently have a cure for hemophilia, advances in treatment have had a tremendous impact on both quality of life and life expectancy for people with hemophilia. Pharmacists can play a pro-active role in reducing the barriers to prophylaxis and treatment of hemophilia but must understand the disease and the latest advances in pharmacotherapy. Pharmacists are often the medical professional that patients reach out to for not only the latest in drug information but also for clarification on changes to treatment protocols. This continuing education course gives the pharmacist a solid knowledge base to enlighten the patients on current and emerging therapies with an emphasis on the need for prophylaxis, medication adherence, counseling, drug contraindications, and general safety issues.
