The mission of the EBMT Patient Engagement Taskforce is to promote active, collaborative participation of patients, donors, caregivers and health care professionals as partners in the society's activities.
The taskforce is a multi-disciplinary team of clinicians, researchers, other healthcare professionals, patients, caregivers, donors, and other stakeholders involved in transplantation and cell therapy.
Patient Engagement Taskforce Core Team
Scroll down the page to view the list of individual members.
Patients, caregivers, donors and health care professionals (HCPs) have complementary strengths and a common goal: optimal care and therapy outcomes.
The taskforce’s objective is to offer a platform to promote interaction between patients/caregivers and healthcare providers and show the added value of such an approach.
This initiative should lead to new common integrated pathways within EBMT to improve the whole transplantation and cell therapy process.
