- Hemophilia is a lifelong bleeding disorder with no cure. The pain, discomfort and risks that accompany hemophilia can be physically and emotionally stressful. Effective pain management is extremely important for improvement quality of life among patients with haemophi¬lia. While some observational studies show a lack of readi¬ness to change and a low adherence to recommended treatments in patients with haemophilia. The study found that a positive attitude and adherence can be en-hanced if people have the opportunity to interact with peers who model and reinforce adherent behaviors. This paper reviewed current pain management strategies for patients with hemophilia and focus on peer education practical examples which have been used in many areas of health and to find peer education models are well established as a means of self-management education to encourage the patients enhance the learning of pain self-manage-ment skills and improve emotional development. Future research in pain self-management of patients with haemophilia using peer education as a strategy should properly designed RCTs to dem-onstrate the efficacy of this intervention.
