Ageing Conference 2022

02/09/2022 12:00 am

Venue: Hodson Bay Hotel, Athlone, Co. Westmeath

We are now living in a time where the first generation of people with haemophilia will have to confront the challenges of ageing. Many people with haemophilia can expect to live beyond their 70th or even 80th year. This is very reassuring and a testament to the improvement in comprehensive care and the availability of factor replacement therapy, for people with haemophilia, over the past decades.

We are committed to taking a strong role, on behalf of people with haemophilia, ensuring that the most effective pathways for monitoring, diagnosis and treatment for conditions associated with ageing, are put in place. While no one wants to dwell on the degenerative effects of ageing, and the problems they may bring, being prepared can go a long way towards alleviating these challenges.

We are pleased to announce that we have organised an ‘Ageing Conference’, which will take place over the weekend of 2nd to 4th September in the Hodson Bay Hotel in Athlone.

This conference is open to members aged forty years and over who have an inherited bleeding disorder and their spouses or partners. Please note that attendance at this conference is strictly for adults only. All bookings received must be paid for in full, at the time of booking and a two-night package is only available. Please note that there will be no registration on Friday evening at the conference.

Depending on your preference ticked on the enclosed booking form, confirmation letters and the final programme will be posted or emailed to delegates approximately two weeks prior to this event.

Please also note that there will be no requirement for you to provide us with a copy of your COVID-19 Vaccination certificate. However, we do recommend the use of face masks for the duration of the weekend and will provide antigen tests for use each morning.
