Bone marrow transplant (BMT) survivors are at significant risk for late complications, including organ toxicity, graft-versus-host disease, infections, secondary cancers, and psychosocial distress. Because community-based nurses frequently provide long-term follow-up care for these patients, it’s essential that they have a solid primer in their needs. 

This session will introduce you to the BMT process, covering assessment, potential late complications, common post-transplant medications, and the survivorship and education needs of this patient population. Case studies will illustrate the 2012 expert care guidelines. You’ll also receive a free education tool that will help you coordinate appropriate, timely patient care.

1. Plan appropriate nursing assessments and interventions based on the 2012 published guidelines for follow-up care of transplant recipients.
2. Identify resources for patient education and ongoing nursing education.

This session qualifies for the following ONCC Individual Learning Needs Assessment (ILNA) categories.

OCN®: Survivorship
AOCNP®: Survivorship
