Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplantation: Responsibility of the Caregiver

The role of the caregiver in the transplant process is extremely important. Often the success of the transplant depends, in part, on the interactions between the patient, the caregiver, and the transplant team.

As a caregiver, you will receive specific instructions from the transplant doctors and nurses on the best ways to help the patient. Remember that you are part of the transplant team and that the other members of the team are ready to assist you in every possible way to make sure that the transplant process proceeds well.

If you have questions, please feel free to ask so that you feel comfortable in your role and understand the care requirements. Together, we can provide excellent care for the patient and achieve a successful outcome.
