About the EHA Annual Congress
The 17th Congress of EHA will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Hematology is
a specialty that covers everything that has to do with blood: its origin in the bone
marrow, diseases (in the production) of blood and their treatments. The latest data on
research and development within the wide spectrum of hematology are presented. The
Congress is aimed at health professionals working in or interested in the field of
hematology. The scientific program topics range from stem cell physiology and development,
to leukemia; lymphoma; diagnosis and treatment; red blood cells; white blood cells and
platelet disorders; hemophilia and myeloma; thrombosis and bleeding disorders as well as
transfusion and stem cell transplantation.
A number of sessions in the Congress program are dedicated to more general health care
- At the Patient Advocacy Session the topic "Quality of Life - do patients perceive Quality of Life the same way as you do?" will be discussed from different perspectives. - In collaboration with the American Society of Hematology (ASH) a joint program has been designed about access to standard drugs and treatment in different geographical areas. - The joint program with the European School of Haematology (ESH) is an interactive session on communication: What clinicians believe they said and what patients believe they heard.
