We recognise the vital role nurses play in delivering haematology services, and with this in mind we have collaborated with leaders in the field to develop the specialist nursing session at our ASM.  Come to this session to hear about the latest innovations in nursing roles, find out how nurses can impact on practice, policy and research, and to improve nursing leadership in haematology.

Other key sessions on the same day which may be of interest are the Presidential Symposium, and the Dacie Wilkinson Bequest Lecture presented by Professor Bob Löwenberg on “Improving Outcomes in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia”. The registration fee also includes the evening social event “The President’s Reception”.
