Branch CPD Event
Level 5 Pharmacy Meeting Room, Royal Hobart Hospital

Hobart, Tasmania 7000

Hospitals that do not conduct allogenic bone marrow transplants may still see these patients down the track. Tasmanian patients usually receive their transplant at the Royal Melbourne Hospital (RMH). Once they return home, our haematology team collaborates with the RMH to ensure optimal management.

We have identified a need amongst general dispensary, compounding and clinical pharmacists to better understand the care of patients that return to us post-allograft. Our local haematology team will provide their perspective on the collaborative approach with the RMH and will discuss the role of non-specialist pharmacists.

Learning objectives:

  • To provide a brief overview of what is involved in an allogenic bone marrow transplant
  • To discuss the role that non-specialist hospitals have when caring for these patients post-allograft, including providing vaccinations and management of complications such as graft vs. host disease
  • To reflect on the role that all areas of pharmacy may have in managing these patients

This event is being held face to face at Royal Hobart Hospital. It will also be video conferenced to the following sites where you can attend:
