Committee Mission

WBMT Nurses Group is formed to answer the group’s particular concerns with focus in countries that has no organized nursing group or are overlooked whose progress in SCT & CT nursing knowledge and patient care is hampered by lack of support, relevant training, and up-to-date information. The WBMT NG will provide leadership, education, and support to nursing professionals involved in SCT & CT worldwide, particularly nurses in emerging countries. The committee is responsible for addressing issues related to nursing practice, evidence-based nursing care and advocating for nursing excellence in SCT & CT through collaboration and consultation with existing international societies such as the ASTCT, EBMT, AFBMT, LABMT, EMBMT, among others.
