Join us for a three-part podium session that explores interventions for patients undergoing blood and marrow transplantation, as well as research that focuses on their donors. 

  • Kavitha Nair will present "An Evidence-Based Practice Project  to Determine Effectiveness of Daily Bathing with 2%  Chlorhexidine Wipes in Addition to Existing Bundled Interventions to Reduce Central Line-Associated Blood Stream Infection Rates in Patients Admitted to a Bone Marrow Transplant Unit." She'll assess the impact of non-rinse daily bathing with 2% CHG-impregnated wipes in preventing central line-associated blood stream infections.                
  • Wilson Yen will present "Redefining Blood Stream Infections in Oncology Patients When Reporting Central Line-Associated Infections." He'll share examples of common skin commensal and mucosal barrier injury blood stream infections. 
  • Denise Holford will present "Blood and Marrow Transplant Donor: Very Important Person Project." She'll identify the type and frequency of symptoms following bone marrow harvests and highlight one institution's successful donor VIP program.
