The Scientific Committee (SC) is a dedicated group of experienced nurses from all over Europe with specific interests in haematology and stem cell transplantation. They complement each other through their different specialties, from working as a nurse specialist, nurse coordinator or as a nurse on a hospital ward, apheresis unit, outpatient clinic and/or consultation unit.
The Scientific Committee is responsible for the nurse-oriented scientific program at the EBMT Annual Meeting. This 4-day meeting takes place every year in March or April in a different European country. The members begin planning the EBMT Annual Meeting in May. In November they meet again to review all the submitted abstracts from nurses and allied health care professionals who would like to present their research, nursing projects or other developing work in the field of haematologic stem cell transplantation at the annual meeting.
Nurses Group Scientific Team
The ambition of the Nurses Group is that all nurses and allied health care professionals, regardless of their experience within the field of haematologic stem cell transplantation, learn something new at the annual EBMT meetings. The aim is to empower them to bring home some improvement ideas so that the quality of care is enhanced in their own practice.
A second aim is to engender confidence in presenting a poster or oral session in both new and experienced nurses and allied health care professionals.
- Meetings in person and communication by email to provide the EBMT Annual Meeting with a quality nurse-oriented scientific program
