TARGET AUDIENCE
This activity is intended for physicians (hematologists), nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses managing patients with hemophilia and scientists with an interest in basic, translational, and clinical research in hemophilia around the world.

STATEMENT OF NEED
As development of gene therapy for hemophilia continues into phase 3 clinical trials, and approval of this therapeutic approach is anticipated, it is essential for all members of the hemophilia care team to be knowledgeable and poised for the integration of this new therapeutic approach into clinical practice.

ACCREDITATION STATEMENT
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of The France Foundation and International Society of Thrombosis and Haemostasis. The France Foundation is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

CREDIT DESIGNATION
Physicians:
The France Foundation designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 0.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
