Bone Marrow Transplant Patient Education
As vital members of their care team, patients need to know what to expect and how to be an active participant in their care. From the initial phase of the transplant process to their gradual return to a normal routine after transplant, being informed reduces anxiety and provides a sense of control and hope.
Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin gives patients and their families a variety of educational options tailored to individual learning styles. Educational opportunities are delivered through one-on-one teaching by coordinators, physicians, financial liaisons, social workers, pharmacists and nursing staff, as well as through videos and written educational information.
Through decades of treating patients undergoing blood and marrow transplants and answering questions from patients’ concerned families, we understand what patients and loved ones most want and need to know. Patients and their families have access to our series of expanded educational material that covers:
- How to Prepare for a Transplant
- Types of Transplants
- The Transplant Process
- What to Expect After a Transplant
