|Online||Nurse Training||Nurses No Frontiers||Nurses||European Society for Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Nursing Section||This project proposal builds on the Nurses No Frontiers (NNF) collaboration with the EBMT Nurses Group with over 30 years of experience, professional knowledge-transfer through on-site and online collaboration with nursing team building as a central pillar. In fact, BMT is the only curative option for both SCD and ST, is highly successful, restores normal health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in most cases and is very cost-effective compared to non-curative long-term supportive care. These programs should achieve self sufficiency and sustainability thanks to local governments take over. The cure of ST by BMT is thus a model of a medically, ethically and financially justified tertiary care procedure which not only saves lives, relieves desperation of many families and financial burden on health care systems but has cascade effects on institutional capacity, higher medical education, research & development. In many low and middle-income countries (LMICs) the limiting factor to health care strengthening is often not financial resources but rather professional know-how. The bulk of this highly qualified workload is carried by nursing personnel and outcomes often depend on the ability to assure that medical prescriptions are carried out correctly and infectious risks minimized.||http://www.ebmt.org/Contents/Nursing/Pages/default.aspx|
