Using a combination of didactic sessions and group interactive case studies, the Foundation Seminar in Haematology will provide participants with some basic skills required to manage patients with haematological malignancies. Participants will gain an understanding of the governance and practicalities surrounding the provision of anti-cancer therapies and develop an understanding of basic pharmacology and common toxicities. The sessions will focus on lymphoma and multiple myeloma management with an emphasis on common regimens, supportive medications, cancer associated thrombosis risk and common infections. Case study sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to check chemotherapy orders and provide recommendations for supportive care.
