Caring for Patients with Bleeding Disorders

This course has been designed for healthcare professionals administering and/or caring for patients with  bleeding disorders. Although the patient may receive long-term care at a physician’s office or Hemophilia Treatment Center, day-to-day care occurs at home, school, work, camp, etc. All clinicians involved in infusing antihemophilic agents and those caring for patients receiving these medications need a working knowledge of the diagnoses for which they are given, proper storage, preparation and administration, and disposal, as well as appropriate interventions, and the psychological implications of having these diseases and receiving treatment for them. Education related specifically to bleeding disorders is crucial to the safe and effective care of these patients.

State Boards of Nursing have varying positions on the role of the LPN/LVN in the administration of infusion therapy, including the administration of antihemophilic agents. A link to each state board of nursing is listed here. Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the nurse’s employer, facility, or institution.

  1. Describe the symptoms of bleeding disorders.
  2. Explain the factor deficiencies in Hemophilia A, Hemophilia B, and von Willebrand disease.
