Patients referred for hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) often have knowledge deficits about their disease and overestimate their prognosis making it difficult initially to discuss potentially life-threatening transplant options. To determine patients' understanding of their disease and the adequacy of a 3-h consultation at our center, we(More)

To improve resource utilization and patient satisfaction, we developed a totally outpatient HSCT program for TBI regimens and compared outcomes for our(More)
