This Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) was developed to assist
ER providers when caring for patients previously diagnosed with
either Hemophilia or von Willebrands disease. Controlled
trials have not been carried out to establish the validity of many
of the diagnosis and treatment options presented here.
Consequently, the CPG is presented as a consensus agreement
of an algorithm, annotations, order sets and outcomes as best
describing the accepted standard of care.

These guidelines do not establish a standard of care to be followed in every case. It is recognized that each case is different and those individuals involved in providing health care are expected to use their judgment in determining what is in the best interests of the patient based on the circumstances existing at the time.
It is impossible to anticipate all possible situations that may exist and to prepare guidelines for each. Accordingly these guidelines should guide care with the understanding that departures from them may be required at times.
