Target Audience

Statement of Need/Program Overview 

Hemophilia is a rare, congenital bleeding disorder characterized by spontaneous and potentially life-threatening bleeding episodes. The most prevalent form, hemophilia A, affects clotting factor VIII, while hemophilia B is associated with a factor IX deficiency. There is currently no cure for hemophilia. People living with this disease may require multiple infusions of clotting factors each week as a prophylactic therapy, as well as emergency treatment in case of an acute injury. Still, patients experience repeated, often spontaneous, bleeding episodes, and in 30% of severe hemophilia A cases, they develop inhibitory antibodies against the replacement factor, that make these patients unresponsive to standard therapy. Successful management of hemophilia is often dependent on highly specialized, coordinated multidisciplinary care among providers, patients, and payers. To effectively address all of the clinical and administrative barriers to optimal hemophilia management, managed care and specialty pharmacy professionals require comprehensive education that increases knowledge and competence in several key areas.
