Virtual program

On wednesday and Thursday, the Dutch Society for Hematology (NVvH) and the Dutch Belgian Cooperative Trial Group for Hematology Oncology (HOVON) jointly present a mix of abstracts and Educationals. Experience has shown that virtual conferences are strenuous and because we want to keep everyone involved, the program committee has developed a compact program that does not include all the usual program components for DHC. Presenations for Fundamental and translational abstracts and clinical abstracts are scheduled on wednesday and thursday morning. In the afternoons there are educational sessions such as How to treat, Tips and Tricks and DHC Educationals. Click here for the concept program.

Abstracts fundamental and translational
These abstracts will be selected by the national Fundamental and translational research.
There will be no open submission for abstracts in these categories. Instead, national and lokal key persons have been appointed for 4 research fields (Benigne/Hemostasis/Thrombosis, Myeloid/Hematopoiese, Lymphoid, Immunology).
See for more information about this procedure and the keypersons by category the organization page . The spoken language of the sessions is English. Only when you are invited you can submitt your abstracts by categorie only for invitation and then to the appropriate categorie.

Abstracts epidemiological or applied clinical research:
For this category, it is possible to submit an abstract.
The abstracts will be evaluated by the program committee for presentation during one of the clinical research sessions. The spoken language is English. The clinical abstracts can be submitted through the website until  22 October 2020!

New this year: All abstract are pre-recorded, you will be contacted by the technical support.

Clinical Program

The afternoons are reserved for the clinical programm. Because virtual meetings are serenuous, we have selected a limited program. The clinical program will consist of DHC Educationals, How to treat sessions and Tips and Tricks sessions. The clinical sessions are recorded live in a studio or from the home situation.

DHC educationals:
These interactive sessions are built around a specific hematologic disease for which a guideline has recently been published. The audience is invited to share their opinion by using an interactive response system. The spoken language of these sessions is Dutch.

How to treat:
Interactive session about treatments for a specific haematological disease

Tips and Tricks:
Interactive sessions about treatments or side effect for new medicines for a specific haematological disease.

By the page program you will find the concept program.

The day rate is 25 euros for all participants. An extra administration fee is added to payments by invoice.

Registrations can be cancelled free of charge untill January 1, 2021.

Accreditation has been requested for DHC virtual. Accreditation points are only issued to registered participants who have evaluated. 

Non branded policy

The 'Wet BIG' (BIG law) divides professionals that are allowed to prescribe medication, and professionals that are not allowed to do so. The Foundation for the Code for Pharmaceutical Advertising ("the CGR") implemented the Code of Conduct for Pharmaceutical Advertising. This Code of Conduct does specifically not allow the industry to showcase and advertise their products to professionals that are, according to the Wet BIG, not allowed to prescribe medication.

Therefore, the congress organization implemented a non-branded policy for all industry sponsors. This policy allows all congress attendees to all (sponsor) rooms and abolish the division between the professionals that are allowed to prescribe medication and those who are not.
