Overview

About this course

Congenital bleeding disorders are relatively rare conditions that present variably in different age groups. When there is a high suspicion of a congenital bleeding disorder, screening tests can be done at the primary care level. However, several bleeding disorders are associated with normal routine screening tests, thus the persistence of symptoms should prompt a timely referral to a hematologist. This e-learning module summarizes the essentials in the identification and multidisciplinary care of patients with congenital bleeding disorders, particularly regarding preventive management to reduce the overall disease burden.
