What is comprehensive care and why is it important for persons with inherited bleeding disorders?

Comprehensive care is coordinated health care for persons with inherited bleeding disorders through a family-centered approach by a multidisciplinary team. The team includes specially trained physicians, nurses, social workers, physical therapists, orthopedic surgeons, infectious disease specialists, dentists, genetic counselors, nutritionists, and educational consultants. Comprehensive care focuses on the physical, emotional, social, educational, financial and workplace impact of bleeding disorders on the person and family. The comprehensive care team collaborates closely with the patient’s medical home (primary care provider) within their community. Studies have shown that patients with inherited bleeding disorders who have their care coordinated through a comprehensive bleeding disorder center live longer and healthier lives than those who receive care from a hematologist alone. Four comprehensive bleeding disorder centers receive support from federal and state funding to provide comprehensive care in Virginia.
