Caregivers' Guide for Bone Marrow/Stem Cell Transplant: Practical PerspectiveEdited by Myra Jacobs, M.A.; Anne Murley, M.S.W., L.C.S.W.; and Carole Slotkin, M.Ed.
National Bone Marrow Transplant Link, 2003, 59 pages

The National Bone Marrow Transplant Link has published a practical compilation of brief essays on caregiving for the transplant recipient. In the environment of increasing outpatient care, the caregiver's responsibilities have become more closely woven into the bone marrow transplant (BMT) process itself. Told from the perspective of various members of the healthcare team - oncology social work and nursing, mother and spouse of the patient as well as the patient, this booklet offers insights into the BMT caregiver role while affirming its importance.
