Inherited Bleeding Disorder Program


The Inherited Bleeding Disorder Program of Southeastern Ontario focuses on diagnosis and management for people with inherited bleeding disorders, and provides the enhanced specialized care they need to live healthy and active lives.

Since 1988, the program has taken a multidisciplinary team approach to delivering comprehensive care to people in southeastern Ontario. 

Our team includes adult and pediatric hematologists, nurse coordinators, physiotherapy, social work, specialized laboratory technicians, a research assistant, and administrative staff.

As a team, we are dedicated to providing accurate diagnosis, care, treatment, education and support to individuals, their families, school staff, and community members who care for those in our community with inherited bleeding disorders.
