BMT training course organised jointly by the EBMT Nurses Group and the NNF in India

9-10 December 2016

You can read below the report of Dr Meera Achrekar, Nurse at the Tata Memorial Centre in Parel, Mumbai in India.
“It was indeed a pleasure having you and your team amidst us for the BMT training program. The response was extremely good as we had 203 participants from over 12 Indian states and 39 hospitals. This also highlights the importance of having similar program to update the nurses’ knowledge and skill and also to standardize various nursing protocols. This request was also verbalized by the delegates. I am also thankful to Aleksandra Babic and the EBMT Group for reducing the annual membership fee for Indian nurses for EBMT by 50 %.
I would like to place my extreme gratefulness to Dr. Brijesh Arora who was instrumental in enabling this program to be conducted in India. I also thank Ms. Poonam Bagai who graced the program with her presence and also ensured that 13 nurses from various hospitals could attend the program. Last, but not the least, I am grateful to Dr. Navin Khattry who made this program possible by being supportive towards the program and also had a key role in getting an educational grant for us.
We hope to conduct similar sessions and meeting you all again.”
Dr. Meera Achrekar
