WOMEN WHO BLEED
Let's Talk Period
Let’s Talk Period aims to increase awareness of the signs and symptoms of bleeding disorders. As many as 35,000 Canadians may be suffering from a bleeding disorder, but many of these may not understand if their bleeding is normal or abnormal and therefore do not seek help. Through her internationally recognized research program at Queen’s University, Dr. James, Hematologist at Kingston General Hospital, and her team have developed a self-administered bleeding assessment tool (Self- BAT) that will help inform people about their bleeding and guide them toward the help they need.
