International Haemophilia Workshop in Association with CARE
Novo Nordisk Haemophilia Foundation (NNHF) funds development programmes that improve access to care for people with haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders in developing countries.
The “Laboratory Coagulation Workshop’’ by Dr Angus McCraw, Royal Free Hospital, London, UK is one such programme. He has conducted such courses in India for four years, along with Ms Pura Lawler from Haemophilia Centre, Royal Free Hospital, London, UK, in partnership with leading diagnostic company Werfen (Instrumentation Laboratory).
Conducted in association with CARE Hospitals, Hyderabad under the guidance of Dr Shanthi Naidu, HoD, Laboratory Medicine, the course (March 15-18) offered laboratory technologists and clinical pathologists from India and the neighbouring countries an opportunity to broaden their knowledge in diagnostic tests and improve diagnosis of bleeding disorders.
After the training, the participants can train others in their own hospitals and country in the protocol of these diagnostic tests, thereby helping haemophilia patients with proper diagnosis and treatment.
