3rd year Medical Laboratory technology students accompanied by Dr Salim Moussa attended the 11th Regional Meeting of the Lebanese Society of Hematology and Blood Transfusion that was held on October 12, 13 & 14, 2017 at Phoenicia Hotel, Beirut.
The students attended lectures about the current update of the french haemovigilance system, covering the entire blood transfusion chain, from the donation and processing of blood and its components, through to their provision and transfusion to patients, and including their follow-up. Now, the students are aware about the adverse effects of transfusion and the need of setting up a haemovigilance system in Lebanon.
In addition, Dr.Christian CHABANNON presentation about the cellular therapy and hematopoietic stem cells mobilization (regenerative medicine) was a very interesting topic for the students allowing them to discover the latest therapeutic strategies for blood diseases worldwide.
At the end of the conference, a certificate of attendance was given and pictures were taken with Dr.Christian CHABANNON and Dr.Jean Michel BOIRON.
