This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
The primary purpose of this review is to evaluate if psychological therapies are helpful in improving the ability of people with hemophilia to cope with their chronic condition.
The chronic aspect of hemophilia, its clinical variabilities and the differences in treatment availability across countries are all factors that affect wellness in its emotional, intellectual, spiritual and behavioural dimensions.
The main objectives are to determine in people with hemophilia:
- if any psychotherapies are effective in the management of the disease;
- which phase of the patient's life or phase of treatment, or both, this effectiveness occurs;
- which psychological therapies (as described under Types of interventions) are more effective for any given situation.
