The European Professional Competence Survey

The European Professional Competence Survey which has been developed in order to further improve and harmonize Hematology Education and Training in Europe, was launched in October. Anonymous results of the survey can be used to further build educational programs at a national and European level. Improving education will raise the overall standards in Hematology, which ultimately will lead to better patient care.

Workshop: Low and Middle Income Countries
13 February 2015, London

The BSH is arranging a workshop to discuss ways which the Society can assist haematologists in developing world countries.  We invite members to apply to attend by emailing the BSH office with an outline of what they could bring to this initiative and in particular any direct relevant experience they have of working in this field.  This is an opportunity for members to influence the Society’s strategy in this area.  The event is free to attend but places are limited.  

BSH is also setting up an LMIC e-Forum open to all BSH members.  If you want to apply to attend the workshop or to sign up for this new e-group please email: clearly indicating your interest.
