GSHTC’s comprehensive care is provided by a multi-disciplinary team of professionals with expertise in bleeding, clotting, and blood-related disorders. The team includes a hematologist, nurses coordinators, medical social worker, physical therapist, dentist, research coordinator, and outreach coordinator. Comprehensive Care is a proven, effective treatment model used in healthcare. This sensitive, family-centered approach works extremely well in caring for people, not just diseases.
The education of the patients and their family is a major part of comprehensive care. We spend much of our time teaching patients and families about their disease, how to treat it, realistic expectations and the possible outcomes. It is our belief that the more a family understands their disease the better they can make adjustments necessary to deal with their disorder.
