- Identify patients who are likely to benefit from nonfactor replacement therapy
- Mitigate complications and barriers to adherence in patients receiving factor replacement therapy
- Apply recent safety and efficacy data for both factor replacement and nonfactor prophylaxis in hemophilia A to clinical practice
- Manage comorbidities in patients receiving prophylaxis for hemophilia A
