22nd Educational Course of the Infectious Diseases Working Party


This year, the Infectious Diseases Working Party (IDWP EBMT) invites you to 22nd IDWP Educational Course, which will be held in Krakow, Poland on 17 -19th October 2019. Current expert knowledge together with new concepts and innovative approaches in the field of infectious complications in hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) will be crucial parts of the meeting.

Infective complications are part of the differential diagnosis of many syndromes affecting particular organs and systems after HSCT, and their pathogeneses and the impact of their treatments can lead to other complications. Adequate management of transplant infectious complications is of paramount importance to improve patient outcome following autologous and allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation.

The IDWP EBMT offers our fellow members this educational course on the management of transplant infectious complications. The course will focus on expert knowledge on practical management of transplant infective complications and will offer the participants the opportunity to interact with top speakers and discuss clinical cases. To reach these educational goals, the Faculty comprises a multidisciplinary team of expert transplanters from the IDWP and EBMT.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity and register now! We are looking forward to welcoming you in Krakow!

Krakow was, according to legend, founded over the cave of a slayed dragon during the time of the Polish kings, and this charming atmosphere of myth and history permeate this lovely city situated by the Vistula river.

Today, Krakow remains Poland’s cultural capital, and it receives millions of tourists yearly, attracted by its history, architecture and gastronomy.


The Infectious Diseases Working Party Business Meeting will be held in the Vienna House Andel's Krakow Hotel, near the Old Town of Krakow and close to the main station.
