Nurses Group

The EBMT Nurses Group brings together nurses and allied health professionals working in the field of haematology and HCT. The mission of the Nurses Group is to improve the care of our patients through evidence-based practice and to enhance and value the nursing role worldwide by supporting and sharing knowledge through communication, advocacy, research, training and education.

Who we are

Educational Resources

The development of excellent educational resources for nursing professionals around the world is one of the top priorities of the Nurses Group. In addition to the new EBMT Nurses Textbook, published for the first time in 2018, we have developed a series of online Learning Programmes and other materials designed to improve patient care and share current knowledge and best practises.
