Trainee Advanced Paediatric Nurse at Birmingham Children's Hospital, the UK
“Hi everyone, my name is Anna Tailby and I have recently joined the Research Committee as Junior Member. I am a Trainee Advanced Paediatric Nurse Practitioner in Stem Cell Transplant and Apheresis at Birmingham Children's Hospital in the UK. My background is in paediatric stem cell transplant, intensive care and critical care outreach nursing and I am currently completing a Masters in Advanced Clinical Practice. I am excited to have the opportunity to be involved in the research work that EBMT has pioneered for many years with the hope of improving the care that stem cell transplant patients, especially children, receive.”
Postdoc at the University of Basel and Advanced Practice Nurse at the Department of Haematology, University Hospital Basel, Switzerland
“Since completing my degree as a Professional Nurse in 2009, I have always worked clinically and gained profound experiences in different clinical settings in Germany, South Africa, the Netherlands and Switzerland. In 2011, I began my academic career, obtained my Master’s degree in Nursing Science at the University of Basel in 2015. Afterwards, I continued with a PhD program, kept working in the clinical frontline at the Department of Haematology, University Hospital Basel and earned my PhD in May 2020.
To bring sustainable innovation to the care of stem cell transplanted patients and their relatives, I am currently combining the academic and clinical world as a Postdoc at the University of Basel and an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) at the Department of Haematology, University Hospital Basel. The focus of my work is the adaptation, implementation and evaluation of an integrated, eHealth-facilitated care model for stem cell transplanted patients as part of an implementation science project within the SMILe study (https://smile.nursing.unibas.ch/).
As a researcher and an APN, the opportunity to become a member of the Nurses Group Research Committee will enable me to support members in developing their own research within the EBMT community, to support the development and adaption of research proposals and to collaborate with EBMT members to exchange interdisciplinary knowledge and experiences, since the EBMT meetings bring together a large variety of experts on bone marrow transplantation and hematologic malignancies.”
