CTTC is an interprofessional association that is the voice of experts working in the field of blood and marrow transplant in Canada. Nurses are an essential component of any stem cell transplant program. Their specialized knowledge and skills ensure that patients undergoing this complex high risk medical intervention can be safely cared for in a variety of settings and in the context of care delivery models that are constantly changing. This CTTC SIG has been designed to create a space for nursing in transplant to connect, learn, and lead.
- Secure opportunities to share best practice/best evidence related to the priority nursing issues related to caring for blood and marrow transplant patients in Canada. Currently the SIG achieves this via dedicated CBMTG webinars, utilization of SOSIDO, and a dedicated session within the program at each CBMTG conference. This group works with the conference planning committee to support this session.
- Increase membership of CTTC by attracting nurses with an interest in stem cell transplant nursing.
- As the research support available to CTTC members grows, this group will be working to provide nursing researchers with an interest in stem cell transplant with the opportunity to apply for Grant Funding.
- Create partnerships with like organizations to maximize impact (CAPO, CANO)
