The American Society of Hematology (ASH) meeting includes education and scientific sessions, poster viewings, and oral presentations, as well as meet-the-expert opportunities.

The latest MDS research findings will be discussed in over 100 oral presentations and more than 300 posters. In addition, the meeting features a few education programs on MDS-specific topics..."

Funnily enough my doctor is attending all the way from Australia.. left me doing induction chemo with another doctor & flew off... taking his family too for a holiday. Should I be thankful at least he keeps up to date with current trends?

Hi Sharnie,

My (ex) haematologist rang me this morning and he leaves tomorrow to go to the ASH conference. He goes every year.

I was very grateful to hear from him, he said that there had been a major communication problem within HOCA and he had been unaware that I had ceased treatment there until recently and then he wasn't told the reasons behind my leaving. He was extremely nice and it relieved my mind to know he hadn't thrown me to the wolves.

He suggested I would be better going to Tony Mills at Greenslopes than Logan but I will wait and see what happens. So far they have been very good.

Sorry to hear about your disease progression. I hope all goes well. I see that they offer wi fi Internet at Greenslopes, at least you're not being isolated from this forum. The Leukaemia Foundation are holding their telephone forum next Wednesday but I'll be in daycare having treatment. Are you going to join?

If/when you have your BMT at RBH, my ex haematologist works at the Transplant Unit there too.

All the best with your chemo.

Regards

Chirley

Back to the conference...

There is a very well-written summary of the Sat. and Sun. presentations and poster sessons now available on the MDS Beacon. Lots of updates together with links to their abstracts from many international researchers.

Must be the thing for the Australian MDS docs to attend. When Paul was at his last appointment, two of the team were away in the US to attend that confrerence

Thanks to Julie Shilane and Maike Haehle for an excellent easy-to-read summary of feedback from Specialists' assessments of MDS-related research presented at ASH 2012.

Check it out on the MDS Beacon...
