Answer

A hematologist, orthopedist, physical therapist, dentist, social worker, psychologist, infectious disease specialist, gastroenterologist/hepatologist, geneticist, and an appropriately equipped special laboratory all play important roles in providing optimal care for patients with FXIII deficiency and their families.

The efforts of the National Hemophilia Foundation and its regional chapters must be recognized in helping to educate patients, assist service providers, foster dialog regarding problems and solutions among patients with bleeding disorders, and improve conditions for the entire community through support of legislation.
