The “WFH International Women’s Day webinar” will focus on issues related to women and girls with bleeding disorders (WGBD), a topic of great importance to the bleeding disorders community given that 15% to 30% of people with heavy menstrual bleeding have an underlying inherited bleeding disorder.
Participants will learn more about abnormal period bleeding, the treatment options available to them, and, most importantly, when they should seek help. Healthcare practitioners will be able better identify and diagnose women living with bleeding disorders by making the link between abnormal period bleeding and bleeding disorders. They’ll learn about the importance of collaboration between gynecologists and hematologists and/or other treating clinicians. There will also be a panel discussion on period poverty and its impact on quality of life.
The webinar is a joint collaboration between the WFH Women and Girls with Bleeding Disorders (WGBD) committee and the WFH von Willebrand Disease (VWD) and Rare Bleeding Disorders (RBD) committee. Speakers will include Dawn Rotellini (U.S.A), Jameela Sathar, MD (Malaysia); Mei Lin Hoo, MD (Malaysia); Paula James, MD (Canada); Roshni Kulkarni, MD (U.S.A); Lauren Phillips (New Zealand); Anupama Pattiyeri (India) and Cassie Osejo (Panama).
The 90 minute will be offered in English, with simultaneous interpretation in French, Spanish, Arabic and Russian.
