Welcome

On behalf of the committee I would like to welcome you to the Haematology Association of Ireland Nurses and Allied Healthcare Professionals website.

Our fabulous committee members are situated throughout Ireland and come together to develop educational multi-professional forums in the field of adult and paediatric haematology. These forums provide education, disseminate practice, offer discussion of experiences and provide opportunities for networking. The Nurse and AHP study day is held in April each year; and the HAI annual conference is held in October and this is a joint conference which runs alongside medical, scientific and laboratory sessions.

All nurses and allied healthcare professionals are welcome to attend and we endeavour to cover a wide range of haematological topics to suit all professionals regardless of your experience. We welcome any suggestions for topics for discussion so please contact any of our committee members via our committee link and we would be happy to discuss this with you. We encourage all delegates to submit an abstract to our annual meeting – it’s a great way to share practice, demonstrate service development and you could also win a prize!

We understand the current restraints in trying to attend conferences so the committee offers bursaries of up to €100 towards the cost of registration or accommodation – so don’t miss out!

Our newsletter ‘Blood Matters’ is also in production and we would love to hear about your area of practice, please contact a committee member for more information.

Your contribution into our meetings and newsletter is what makes HAI nurses and AHP group so diverse and well attended so please keep up the good work and we look forward to your presence at our next conference.

Kindest regards,

Jacinta Byrne
