When we first asked the nurses at Haemophilia Treatment Centres (HTCs) about the emerging issues related to ageing with a bleeding disorder, they said, ‘Where do we start?’. And indeed, the Haemophilia Foundation Australia Getting Older needs assessment had a lot of ground to cover!

The Getting older with a bleeding disorder needs assessment report has now been completed, the result of many months of intensive work.

There will also be a short community report, which is a summary of the findings.
