EBMT NEWSLETTER | March 2016 | Volume 51 - Issue 2

Important dates
The EBMT Data Management Group will use the opportunity provided by the Annual Meeting in Valencia to offer a series of educational, scientific and training sessions for Data Management professionals within an interactive and friendly environment. This will be another unique opportunity for individuals from different centres, countries and institutions to meet up and get to know each other face to face.

Education Sessions

There will be a varied programme for data management professionals at all levels of their career and which should be of interest to everybody, regardless of background. These sessions are open to everyone  -  so no need to book, just turn up at the session. These sessions will be suitable to enhance your knowledge if you are new to this field or if you are an experienced data manager, there will be sessions which have a higher scientific context.

Session topics will include:

Cell therapy; Conditioning (for allos); Performing a Study: from study proposal to publication; Inherited disorders – management and follow up; JACIE – the process explained; Donor outcome follow up – why we need a donor outcome registry; Optimising data collection at a BMT unit (Centre presentation); Burning issues regarding de novo & secondary AML classification; Cord blood; The co-morbidity index; Ex vivo manipulation; The changes to the Med-A – interactive session; Myeloma: How to evaluate response to treatment and relapse – Case Studies.

We recommend participants to try to attend as many sessions as possible - even if they do not seem to relate directly to your area of work. In the past, we have found that people learn more about transplants by finding out what is involved in a diverse range of areas. We always encourage active participation in these sessions, raising issues and requesting clarifications, so that we can all learn from each other.

EBMT Registry Database (ProMISe) Training Sessions

We are once again offering training sessions on how to access and use the Registry Database via ProMISe for Data Entry, Data Retrieval, HLA Data Entry and Exports & Sharing Reports. The Data Entry session is an introduction to HSCT and to the Med-A and only absolute beginners should sign up for it. The following three sessions are aimed primarily at experienced ProMISe users.

 The Data Retrieval session will focus on obtaining data listings, frequencies, cross-tabulations and running queries. The HLA Data Entry session will focus on how to enter HLA reports, for those users who want to do this themselves.  Exports and sharing reports will focus on downloading reports, exporting and transferring reports, running macros. 

Please note: Places for the ProMISe training sessions are limited so booking is essential. If you would like to attend any of them please click on this link to the booking form.
