This event is open to all H&I Labs, Clinical Scientists and Transplant Coordinators involved in unrelated donor and cord blood unit selection process. Continuous professional development points are also available at this workshop. Past topics covered new approaches in graft selection and ways clinicians, H&I scientists and Registry can work together to get the best donors to the patient.

Transplant coordinator workshop

The workshop is a chance for Transplant Coordinators and Registry Coordinators to have a detailed conversation about all the steps of donor provision and discuss registry processes.

It is a valuable opportunity to better understand each other, raise any existing obstacles and see what we at Anthony Nolan can do together to provide a donor for your patient in the most efficient way. The day is also a great opportunity for everyone to learn and to share experiences.
