In October 2022 the IEC forum was launched through EBMT. The forum is designed for nurses and AHPS looking after patients receiving Immune effector cells such as CAR-T therapy, anywhere in the patient pathway. The forum is designed for anyone. The purpose of the forum is to bring together nurses and AHPs to:

  • Have discussions,
  • Ask questions,
  • Share ideas, 
  • Advertise learning resources and opportunities. 

The forum is open to both EBMT members and non-members. Within in the forum there is also a tutorial which can walk you through instructions on navigating your way around. 

There is a section to introduce yourself and tell us where you are from and what you do.  

IEC Forum Welcome

There is also a discussion list where you can post questions, or experiences to which anyone can reply, these discussions include referrals, toxicities, follow-up care and late complications.

This list is not exclusive and suggestions for other threads are welcomed.
