Abstract

Recent technological advances in the care of the hemophiliac patient have brought new challenges for health care professionals. These challenges include attention to both physical and psychosocial aspects of this disorder. Refinement of the replacement therapy and increased education of patients and their families will enable hemophiliacs to improve the quantity and quality of their lives.
