Increasing the speed of knowledge sharing in blood cancer to improve patient care

Spring has sprung and the blood cancer congress calendar is jam-packed with news, science, education and knowledge sharing opportunities. However, this makes keeping up-to-date with rapidly developing news, science, emerging data and evolving treatment approaches is challenging for today’s time poor haemato-oncologist, let alone knowledge hungry patients searching to keep abreast of potential new therapies.


Our own April congress journey started on the 3rd April in Valencia at the 42nd Annual Meeting of the European Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), followed by the International Society of Hematology XXXVI World Congress in Congress (ISH), which was hosted by the British Society for Haematology at the 56th Annual Scientific Meeting, between 18th-21st April.

The latter half of the month is focused on Myeloma, as this week we head across the Atlantic to Boston, USA and Myeloma 2016 and then back to Europe for Controversies in Multiple Myeloma (CoMy) on the 28th April.
This is an exciting and rewarding time to be working in blood cancer, with rapid clinical advances developing in to additional therapeutic options patients.  However, the compact April congress calendar highlights the significant volume of new information being presented and the difficulties haemato-oncologists and patients have finding, digesting and interpreting this information.

One solution to information access and overload is provided via short-form video with latest news, interviews, debates and presentations delivered by medical (KOLs) and patient (POLs) opinion leaders hosted on video channels. Independent open access publishers such as The Video Journal of Hematology (VJHemOnc) and Patient Advisory Channels such as PatientPower.eu provide short, digestible educational video for haemato-oncologists and cancer patients respectively, which can be accessed via the web or mobile devices.


For cancer professionals who can’t attend every conference, they can now watch conference highlights 24/7 and bring themselves up to date very quickly post congress. For patients they often seek to improve knowledge about their disease and potential treatment options to be better informed prior to a consultation. We know that patients prefer independent video content as a source of information with 20.9% having learned something from Patient Power, which led to a dialogue with their doctor and led to a change in your treatment plan*. That is a compelling reason to utilise video content at the heart of your medical education and patient-engagement strategy.


We travel the world to create and share engaging content, designed to meet the needs of today’s time-poor physicians who need rapid access to digestible, accessible digital content, and patients, who need access to trust-worthy and reliable information online.

Ansar Jawair discusses precision medicines - what they are, where we are today and their future
Ansar Jawair, Founder and CEO of Precision Medicines Ltd, tells us about his talk on precision medicines, what they are, where we are today, the future and some of the challenges involved in their implementation to patients. Precision medicines are matched to patients using biomarkers, enabling to target the specific drivers of various cancers. Major advances have already been made in this field, treating a range of cancers. Some of the major challenges include working with the complexities in different countries, trying to establish diagnostic testing, for enabling precision medicine. He mentions how we are moving towards an era of delivering personalised treatments that are matched to the individual patient. Furthermore, through advances in precision medicines and in diagnostic testing, we are seeing earlier detection of disease and identification of risk factors, allowing for preventative measures.

Acute leukaemia patients get new online information centre that will help them get the best possible care
A unique collaboration between some of the world's leading leukaemia experts and the patient community in the UK and across Europe has resulted in the development of a one-of-a-kind educational resource centre that provides acute leukaemia patients with the support they need, when they need it most. It is the first time that such a comprehensive medical information video resource has been gathered together in this format and comes at a time when cancer patients and caregivers are advocating for a bigger say in decisions about their individual treatment regimens.
