3 INVITATION TO THE CONGRESS Dear Participants; Blood Banks and Transfusion Medicine Society of Turkey (BBTST) has organized 16 national courses, 6 national congresses, 106 symposiums and 1 regional ISBT congress for blood center employees in cooperation with The Ministry of Health, various university hospitals and Turkish Blood Foundation since We are excited to have the VII. National Congress of Blood Centers and Transfusion Medicine with you between 2-6 December In addition to informing professionals of new developments, congresses are a little different than courses in that they are scientific environments, where professionals can present their work through posters and verbally. This way, we can both acquire information regarding new developments and have an idea regarding the level our country has reached in blood banking. As always, there is going to be a basic training course, concurrently with the congress. Basic Training Course is for those who are blood banking and transfusion medicine professionals but have never received this course before. Profession or positions of the participants are not important. The reason it is called basic training course is because basic topics in the same content are presented by different speakers. The objective is to give the professionals in this field a standard beginning training. Since content is the same, participating this course repeatedly is not recommended. We strongly recommend the colleagues, who have recently joined us to participate in this course. Moreover, National Blood and Blood Products Guide is going to be discussed in great detail. We will get to know each other better, learn, teach, discuss. Have fun and make sure blood banking in our country goes one step further. Those, who complete the Congress and Course programs, are going to be awarded certificate of attendance. Both programs are accredited by the Turkish Medical Association. We expect all blood center employees to attend. We look forward to see you in Antalya.
