The 11th international, case-oriented course offering hematologists further training in von Willebrand Disease


The 2019 Malmö Application Deadline was January 21, 2019. Travel award recipients have been selected for this year.

HTRS was commissioned by Octapharma to recruit and select up to three U.S. hematologists in 2019 to be provided with travel, lodging, and registration to attend Von Willebrand Disease – From Theory to Clinical Practice from April 10-12, 2019, in Malmö, Sweden. This educational course and the U.S. attendees' expenses are supported by Octapharma, and the course is offered in collaboration with the Malmö Centre for Thrombosis and Haemostasis, Lund University, and Skåne University Hospital.

Applications were sought from U.S. hematologists working in non-commercial institutions within seven years of fellowship who are members of the ConECCTOR (junior faculty) network of HTRS, who could demonstrate a commitment to hemostasis, and who also could show a need for further training in the diagnosis and management of VWD. Successful applicants travel to Malmö, Sweden from April 10-12, 2019 to take part in this educational course. The course uses an evidence-based, interactive approach to learning through presentations and case reviews. Specifically, attendees will gain new knowledge in these areas:

  • Molecular genetic background
  • Blood coagulation and methods of measurement
  • Diagnosis
  • On-demand treatment and prophylaxis
  • Treatment during surgical operation
  • Children with VWD and aspects of VWD in the area of gynecology and obstetrics
  • Inhibitor development to VWF
  • Monitoring of VWD patients
  • International knowledge about organizations focused on von Willebrand Disease

Priority was given to applicants who are current HTRS Core members.  To become an HTRS Core member, visit the Membership tab of this website.
