Abstract:
Education: Autologous and Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation (ASCT) is a highly complex process used in treating various hematological malignancies. It requires intensive care of patients both during their hospital admission and in outpatient follow up. Primarily due to their immunosuppressed state, their close follow up is usually provided by the ASCT center; however, this results in a heavy burden of resource utilization which results in fewer patients having access to ASCT. Enhanced and more rapid integration of patients back into the primary care environment is desirable. (1) Create a curriculum designed to educate MLPs about the specific follow up needs of ASCT patients post transplant. (2) Disseminate a curriculum designed to educate MLPs about the specific follow up needs of ASCT patients post transplant. (3) Evaluate the curriculum by means of an objective assessment. The curriculum will include the following: Overview of ASCT, Recognition and treatment of chronic graft versus host disease (GvHD); Identification and monitoring of key infectious processes; Management of immune system recovery, Immunization requirements and schedules; Recognition of late effects; and Original disease relapse recognition, testing and re-staging. Integrating patients who have undergone an ASCT back into primary care is feasible through an intensive and directed education program for MLPs. We anticipate that this will likely result in better utilization of health care resources for the transplant center, enhanced communication between health care providers, and improved quality of care.
