The UK BMT Pharmacists Group is a forum for pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who are involved in providing pharmaceutical care to patients undergoing blood and marrow transplants and other cellular therapies for the treatment of both malignant and non-malignant disorders. The group was set up in 2002, originally as an email group, but in the past 4 years has sought to broaden its activities through the provision of regular educational meetings and the development of a more formal work-plan to support pharmacy staff working in this specialist field. Recent activities have included developing and maintaining a generic training passport for BMT pharmacists and working with the BOPA Education and Training sub-committee to produce a set of e-learning modules, covering various aspects of the care of the BMT patient. We currently have over 60 members and an active email discussion forum – https://groups.io/g/UKBMTPharmacists.
New members are always welcome and anyone wanting to find out more about the group should contact Nick Duncan at [email protected].
The current committee structure is outlined below:
- Co-Chairs: Liz Davies and Raakhee Shah
- Secretary: Nick Duncan
- Education and Training Leads: Sinead Connolly and Nadjoua Maouche
- Audit and Research Leads: Helen Scarfe and Siobhan Smith
