Show notes:

As a member of the rare disease community, bleeding disorder patients and their families are used to taking surveys, signing up for clinical trials, and/or sharing our thoughts about what it is like living with a bleeding disorder. So what makes this new initiative from the National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF) different? Join us for a conversation with NHF Head of Research, Michelle Witkop and Research Nurse Specialist, Maria Santaella as they share the details of MyBDC, a community-powered registry aimed at capturing the patient experience. MyBDC is a comprehensive, personalized registry that focuses on the entire family unit. Want to learn more? Join us for an in depth conversation about MyBDC on Ask the Expert!

The enrollment process will take 2 to 3 minutes. Each family member, caretaker and/or patient will need to enroll. The initial survey will take 20 to 30 minutes.

All members of the family unit are encouraged to enroll. Patients, siblings, grandparents, caretakers, parents are able to enroll and create their own account. Currently, the platform only accepts adults, but a children’s portal is being created.
