Abstract:
Education: Informing blood and marrow transplant (BMT) nurses and other medical professionals about available transplant-related materials and services ultimately improves the support provided to BMT patients, caregivers and their families. The National Marrow Donor Program's (NMDP) Office of Patient Advocacy provides educational resources that assist providers with helping patients make informed decisions regarding transplant. The NMDP developed an interactive custom profile activity for the 2008 Oncology Nursing Society (ONS) Annual Congress which offered booth visitors an opportunity to learn about available NMDP resources and services. The goal was to educate BMT nurses on transplant-related educational materials and services for health care providers and patients. Secondarily, the goal was to increase general awareness of the NMDP. An assessment tool comprised of six questions was administered to nurses and other medical professionals who visited the NMDP booth at the 2008 ONS Annual Congress. The assessment tool employed a cross-sectional survey design to evaluate the medical professionals': Affiliation with NMDP Network, Role as transplant process educator Access to post-transplant care guidelines, and Interest in supporting the NMDP mission/engagement with the NMDP. Corresponding transplant educational materials were offered to individuals based on their responses to each question. A total of 183 nurses and other medical professionals participated in the educational activity at the NMDP booth. Of these, 32% were affiliated with the NMDP network; 90% were transplant process educators; 44% had access to post-transplant care guidelines; and 84% were interested in supporting the NMDP mission. Additionally, 61% of the transplant-related educational materials were distributed and 55 materials orders were placed by activity participants. The BMT nurses and medical professionals attending the 2008 ONS Congress benefited from the NMDP educational activity. Access to educational materials was provided, resulting in increased knowledge of pre-transplant and post-transplant guidelines, as well as resources available on the latest research in transplantation. More than 80% of participants were interested in supporting the NMDP mission. Each of them was given information on how to become a donor, volunteer and/or financial contributor. The NMDP continues to advance its life-saving mission through science, service and support.
