23rd Educational Course of the IDWP

General Information

This year, the Infectious Diseases Working Party (IDWP EBMT) invites you to the 23d IDWP Educational Course, which will be held in Jerusalem, Israel, 28-30 October 2020. 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 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, to present and discuss clinical cases. To reach these educational goals, the Faculty comprises a multidisciplinary team of experts in transplantations and infectious diseases from the IDWP and EBMT.

The course will be held in Jerusalem, one of the most ancient cities in the world with a fascinating history of thousands of years. The venue is located near the beautiful Old City of Jerusalem which has much to offer for visitors.

"The mountain air is clear as wine
And the scent of pines
Is carried on the breeze of twilight

With the sound of bells."
