Canadian Social Workers in Hemophilia Care are here to provide support and promote the well being of children, youth and adults, and their families who receive care at a bleeding disorder treatment centre (HTC). Social workers provide care to individuals with bleeding disorders throughout their life, from infancy to senior years. Our work together might be focused on the impact of the recent diagnosis of a bleeding disorder, the stress of treatment complications, or practical concerns of life. Social workers are familiar with community resources and services. Your comprehensive health care team includes the following members: physician, nurse, physiotherapist and social worker, but most importantly, the team includes the individual living with a bleeding disorder and his/her family.
To talk to the social worker on your team, call or e-mail the social worker at your bleeding disorder treatment centre or ask any of your health care team members to have the social worker contact you.
