Haemophilia Physio Care through the Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has changed the landscape for all of us. Many haemophilia centres are now reviewing patients either by the telephone or through web-based communication platforms.

As physios, we hope to see our patients continue to live a relatively active (albeit indoor) lifestyle, while also recognising that many of you will still need some guidance on how to manage acute bleed-related situations, at least in the first instance.

So the HCPA’s Spark IT team has developed a list of online resources that we think you may find helpful in making your own health care decisions.

The following links are to external sites maintained by other public and private organisations. We do not control or guarantee the accuracy, relevance, timeliness, or completeness of the information they offer.
