    Nurse Practitioners
    Nurse practitioners are registered nurses with advanced, master's degree training. After your child has been diagnosed by the hematology team, your child will most often be seen by a nurse practitioner who specializes in hematology and who works in collaboration with the attending physician.

    Nurse Coordinators
    Nurse coordinators provide a variety of services for specific groups of patients. Their responsibilities include education, coordination of annual exams, coordination with outside agencies and assistance with medical needs for travel.

    Social Workers
    Social workers assist families with emotional as well as practical needs. They are available to help your child and your entire family cope with chronic illness and/or hospitalizations.

    Physical Therapists

    Some blood disorders, such as hemophilia, are better managed when patients work with a physical therapist to practice safe, healthy movement.

    Genetic Counselors

    Genetic counselors are licensed professionals with masters-level training in genetic counseling, which includes advanced training in clinical genetics and counseling. If you or your child has been diagnosed with a condition that has a genetic basis, or if there is a family history of a hereditary condition, you may meet with a genetic counselor to review your family’s medical history, learn about options for genetic testing, review genetic test results and review what this information means for you, your child and your family members.
