The Parents Weekend was piloted in 2009 the Society. We recognised that for parents who have children with haemophilia, especially young children, there is a need for education, information and peer support. The Parents Conference, which was organised in conjunction with the haemophilia care teams in St. James\’ Hospital and Our Lady\’s Childrens Hospital Crumlin, provided such an opportunity for the parents. It is our view, endorsed by the health care workers, that the parents will learn as much from each other and from their experiences with raising children with haemophilia as they will from the health care workers.
