BMT group study day

The fifth educational meeting of the UK BMT Pharmacists’ Group took place at the UCLH Education Centre, London on the afternoon of Friday 12th July 2019.  Over 30 pharmacists from 22 different UK transplant centres attended.  Sponsorship was very kindly provided by Incyte, Jazz and Pfizer.  Topics presented included stem cell transplantation in lymphoma, challenges associated with diagnosing invasive fungal infections in haematology patients, feedback from the recent European Haematology Association (EHA) conference and the role of the clinical pharmacist in the management of CAR-T patients.  A full report is available here. You will need to log in to access.

It was fantastic to see so many haematology pharmacists at the meeting and we are aiming to hold our next educational meeting before the end of 2019.  Please keep an eye out for further details which will be posted on the group’s page on the BOPA website soon.
