EHA, the Armenian Hematology Association (AHA) and for the first time with the Georgian Association For Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation (GBMTA), the societies organized a virtual “mini Tutorial” on November 10 and 11, 2021. In four sessions divided over two evenings, the mini Tutorial focused on increasing the knowledge of biology, diagnostics and management of CLL, MDS and MM, and transplantation.
Through lectures, interactive self-assessment cases and clinical case presentations, participants of the mini Tutorial did not only hear from experts in the field, but the virtual sessions also allowed them to learn about the biology of CLL, MDS and MM, increase the ability to correctly classify CLL, MDS and MM, list and describe diagnostics methods and treatment of CLL, MDS and MM, and moreover, describe and indicate role of transplant in a new era of treatment of hematological diseases.
During the extended Q&A time it was possible for all to interact – questions were submitted by the participants, and then answered live by the faculty. The mini Tutorial was attended by more than 100 unique attendees from over 26 countries, including Armenia, Georgia, Italy, Moldova, United Kingdom, Bolivia and Saudi Arabia and more.
With feedback such as “... an opportunity to discuss the "burning" topics in my field of expertise” and “as a little nation and subsequently the low quantity of hematologists, I wholeheartedly believe, future internet based congresses (not just on -line ) will be more productive for us, as far as discernment and educating”, we are able to look back at a successful mini Tutorial with AHA and GBMTA.
EHA would like to thank the organizing partners, Armenian Hematology Association and the Georgian Association For Blood and Bone Marrow Transplantation, faculty, and attendees for their contribution to the Tutorial’s success.
