Guidelines Published by the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC)
SOGC Clinical Practice Guidelines on the Gynaecological and Obstetric Management of Women with Inherited Bleeding Disorders were published in the July, 2005 issue of the Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology Canada. Publication of these guidelines was one of the key recommendations arising from the 2003 1st Canadian State of the Art Conference on von Willebrand Disease organized by the Canadian Hemophilia Society. The CHS would like to acknowledge the authors: Drs. Christine Demers, Michèle David, Christine Derzko and Joanne Douglas whose expertise and efforts made this achievement possible. The guidelines are available in PDF format. This material is under copyright and is accessible for educational purposes only.
