Patient, Family and Donor Day

To be held in person on Sunday, 23 April, 2023, throughout the day.

Live-streamed via the congress virtual platform. 

The Patient, Family and Donor Day has become an increasingly integral part of the yearly EBMT congress since it was first introduced at EBMT Lyon 2007. For the first time in Frankfurt 2019, the Patient, Family and Donor Day took place on Sunday, and was also expanded to include two parallel sessions.

One of the main goals is the improvement of the communication between EBMT professionals and patients. This is increasingly relevant due to the rapid evolution of technology associated with transplantation and its relationship with the growing field of cellular therapy. The introduction of new drugs and graft manipulation techniques, combined with changes in the clinical pattern of transplantation, particularly in the outpatient setting, has led to remarkable developments in the field over the last few years. The programme is aimed at exploring both scientific trends and the special relationship which is often created between the clinical BMT personnel and patients and their families.

The sessions will be in English and simultaneous translation to French will be available on-site.

The sessions will be live-streamed via the virtual congress platform, however, no simultaneous translation will be available for this option. 

The Patient, Family and Donor Day takes place on Sunday, and registration for this unique and memorable day is free. All are welcome to attend!
