Haemophilia Academy

What is the Haemophilia Academy?

A 2007 survey of haematologists revealed that there are few opportunities for knowledge sharing, particularly among those at an early stage of their career in haemophilia. To address this need, the annual Haemophilia Academy was established for young haematologists. The programme comprises a 4.5-day, CME-accredited educational event in a European location during the final quarter of every year. The first nine meetings of the Haemophilia Academy were held in Edinburgh in October/November each year from 2008 to 2016.



Objectives


The Haemophilia Academy aims to:

  • Provide specific education support to trainee haemophilia treaters at an early stage in their careers
  • Address their perceived and real educational needs
  • Improve the management of haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders



Faculty, support and endorsement

A distinguished Faculty of seven leading haemophilia experts are responsible for planning the programme, the selection of participants, developing educational materials and delivering the sessions.



In addition, the compelling nature of the first four programmes resulted in endorsement from
three key professional societies

  • European Association for Haemophilia and Allied Disorders (EAHAD)
  • International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH)
  • Hemostasis and Thrombosis Research Society (HTRS)


Since 2012 the Haemophilia Academy has been endorsed by:


HTRS ISTH


CME accreditation

The 2016 Haemophilia Academy was granted 25 CME credits by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
