EBMT Registry: MACRO Database Training


The EBMT will be implementing the MACRO platform during 2019, to support its patient registry. (The new platform will replace ProMISe). MACRO is a powerful data collection system that is currently already used by various pharmaceutical companies as well as international academic/medical centres. 

To make member centres more familiar with this platform, EBMT (and national registries) have been organising initial face to face training sessions all over Europe.

You can book your training on the Registry education and training page. Future sessions will be posted on this page. The next sessions will take place in:

  • Frankfurt, 25 & 26 March 2019. (For congress participants who have registered for EBMT 2019). Places still available for the Tuesday afternoon session and last few remaining for Tuesday morning.
  • Sweden, 5 April 2019 at Karolinksa Institute.
  • Poland, 15 April 2019 at Medical University of Warsaw.
