About the Book

'Living with haemophilia' has established itself as the complete guide to haemophilia and related disorders. Written primarily for affected families, the book also provides a useful and up-to-date guide for doctors, paramedical staff, including nurses and physiotherapists, and teachers. It
explains the inheritance of haemophilia, bleeding episodes and how to control them, safe treatment including home therapy and prophylaxis, and the prospects for a genetic cure.
Other coverage includes: Sex and family planning; Childhood with haemophilia; Education and employment; Sports and travel; Previous side effects of treatment including HIV and AIDS
Sensitively and clearly written at an appropriate level for those with haemophilia, their families and friends. This book aims to dispel the myths and raise awareness of the realities of haemophilia. It takes a positive approach to physical development and encourages the pursuit of healthy, active
and fruitful living. Peter Jones shows how, with the right care, the person with haemophilia can live an active and normal life. He addresses all the questions that those with haemophilia or those caring for them need to know the answers to, with humour and genuine concern. He has worked with
those affected by it for over 30 years and this book contains his wealth of experience.
