Patient advocates reporting from EHA Congress 2011 (Update)

ehaOn 9-12 June 2011, the European Hematology Association (EHA) held its 16th Annual Congress in London, featuring newest results from clinical trials and biology research in hematology. Several patient advocates attended the meeting. This year brought great news to the CML patient community - not only from a medical perspective. Jana Pelouchová and Jan Geissler chaired a very successful "Patient Advocates Session" on Adherence within scientific program of the congress, which featured Giora Sharf's presentation of brand-new data of the CML Advocates Network's pilot survey on adherence. In addition, patient advocates from 8 pan-European hematology patient organisations, including the CML Advocates Network, had a very fruitful meeting with EHA's executive board, potentially laying the base for a fruitful cooperation in upcoming years.
