Extension Seminar in Haematology

Extension Seminar in Haematology

The Extension Seminar in Haematology will be delivered as an online self-paced learning package followed by a live virtual seminar on Saturday 31 August 2024. It is suitable for pharmacists with experience in managing haematological malignancies who are looking to extend or consolidate their knowledge and skills.

The seminar covers key concepts in managing acute leukaemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, relapsed and refractory diffuse large B cell lymphoma and multiple myeloma. The self-paced learning package includes didactic sessions from multidisciplinary specialists focusing on fundamentals of these malignancies. The knowledge and skills learned during these sessions will then be consolidated in interactive case study sessions and through Q&A session/s with expert presenters 

The self-paced learning package comprises approximately 6-7 hours of learning material and will be available from Friday 19 July 2024.  The live virtual component of this seminar will take place on Saturday 31 August 2024.  The self-paced learning package materials must be completed prior to attending the live virtual seminar.

Please note: all attendees will have 18 weeks of access to the seminar self-paced learning package and resources from your date of enrolment into this page.  Enrolment details will be sent to registered attendees when available.
