Welcome – SASCeTs 2018

Dear Colleagues and Stakeholders

Welcome to the 2018 annual conference for the South African Stem Cell Transplant Society which this year will be held in conjunction with the South African Medical Oncologists Society in Durban from the 16th to 18th November.

We are pleased to offer this conference themed “Myeloma, the solution is still within” in conjunction with SASMO since this fits in well with their theme of “A multidisciplinary approach to cancer care”. Our Allied Health Professions Program also will fit in well with many areas of commonality. We will share plenary sessions and then run a parallel program to scintillate the enquiring mind. There are many areas of synergy between the two societies and we look forward to future collaboration.

For the first time we are proud to offer a “Patient and Family Day” dealing with survivor issues such as sexuality, post-traumatic stress syndrome and many more.

We have a number of international speakers already confirmed and look forward to presenting a program packed with relevant and topical transplant issues. I would like to encourage you to start preparing your own data so that the local content can be even better than the high standard presented previously.
