Nurses Webinars

EBMT and LABMT are collaborating in offering live webinars for nurses, hosted by experts for both societies members. 

The objective of these webinars is to obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to guarantee quality care to those patients who receive a hematopoietic progenitor transplant.

All the live webinars will be hosted in Spanish. After the session, a Webinar e-course will be available on the EBMT e-learning platform. When all the talks are aired and uploaded, the attendees will have the opportunity to take an exam. The fact of having chosen 10 hours of training is not arbitrary since it is the number of hours of annual training recommended in the JACIE standards.

In this course, the webinar’s content will be translated into English.

EBMT and LABMT will provide a certificate to those attendees who pass the exam.
