“Beyond Fundamentals of HCT” eBook and free “Introduction to HCT” Webinar


The field of hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT) continues to advance rapidly. The ASBMT is proud to offer two excellent educational resources related to HCT geared towards pharmacists, pharmacy student and residents, registered nurses, advanced practice professionals, and hematology/oncology fellows.  The materials are designed to provide practitioners with the skills and knowledge required to care for patients undergoing HCT. 


Beyond Fundamentals of HCT Course Recap

The ASBMT Pharmacy SIG in collaboration with the National Marrow Donor Program/Be The Match recently hosted Beyond Fundamentals of Hematopoietic Cell Transplant (HCT) in conjunction with the 2017 ASBMT/CIBMTR Tandem Meetings in Orlando, Florida.  This comprehensive course provided 16 hours of continuing education credits to the course registrants across many disciplines including pharmacists, advanced practice providers, nurses, physicians and fellows.  New to the live content this year were two interactive case-based panel discussions covering infectious complications and Graft-versus-Host Disease, a presentation specific to busulfan pharmacokinetics, as well as content addressing pediatric transplant indications.  In addition to live programming, the course developed a 1-hour live webinar as an overview “Introduction to Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (HCT)”, which was recorded at the time of presentation and is still available for viewing through May 31, 2017.

We are pleased to note that Beyond Fundamentals of HCT enrolled 90 participants this year, a record since the course began in 2013!   For those who were unable to attend the live programming, you may still purchase the course e-book, which contains around 1500 pages of comprehensive information, with a pharmacotherapy focus, on the management of HCT patients – a great primer for pharmacy students and residents, hematology/oncology fellows, as well as advanced practice providers and nurses early in practice.
