Program Description

Bleeding related to von Willebrand disease (VWD) presents in many healthcare settings outside of hematology. It is challenging for clinicians who may not be well-versed in heritable blood diseases to recognize and respond to cases of VWD that may underlie excessive postprocedural or post-trauma bleeding, reports of heavy menstrual periods, epistaxis, and other symptoms that often have more common etiologies. Practice gaps hamper disease recognition, workup, and hematology referral in those with suspected VWD. There are also gaps in the ongoing evaluation of VWD treatment, its dosing, adverse events, and drug-drug interactions across healthcare settings.

Intended Audience

Hematologists, Primary Care Clinicians and others with an interest in von Willebrand Disease

Educational Objectives

After completing the activity, the participant should be better able to:

  • Recognize the signs and symptoms of von Willebrand disease (VWD) and its underlying pathophysiology
  • Perform family and personal history, physical examination, and appropriate laboratory testing upon suspicion of VWD and refer patients with relevant histories and exams to a hematologist
  • Customize VWD care plans by considering indications, mechanism of action, safety, and efficacy of treatment choices, and provide appropriate follow-up and care coordination
  • Counsel and educate patients with VWD on managing risk and sustaining health and quality of life
