Patient and Family Day EBMT London 2013

The EBMT Patient and Family Day runs just ahead of the main EBMT meeting. This annual event, now in its seventh year, provides an important opportunity for patients, donors and carers to meet with leading international transplant clinicians.

A series of plenary sessions and workshops throughout the day will allow both formal and informal interactions between delegates and speakers. Patients who have had, or expect to have, a bone marrow transplant are given the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in the field, to understand how best to manage any complications and how to adjust to life after transplant. Previous and prospective stem cell donors too will have the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of their donation.

A well informed patient is an empowered patient. We aim to make this an exciting and educational day that patients and families will enjoy and find beneficial in building relationships of trust and confidence with their own clinical teams.
