helpful transplant webcasts

BMT InfoNet is a great resource for all things cancer transplant related.  In particular, it has an especially good list of webcasts covering GvHD, emotional health, employment, fatigue, fertility, and more.  During the past few months, BMT InfoNet has uploaded new webcasts, which I wanted to highlight.  All are available for streamline or download.

In Managing Skin GvHD, Dr. Maria Turner of the National Institutes of Health and Dr. Fiona Zwald of Emory University will examine:

  • how chronic GvHD can affect the skin
  • treatments available to treat dry skin
  • what causes itching and how to treat it
  • steps to take to manage contractures
  • erosions and ulcers
  • medications that can aggravate skin GvHD
  • the risk of skin cancer in patients with GvHD

This presentation can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer.

In Stem Cells: A Primer, Dr. Laura Michaelis of Loyola University reviews:

  • the difference between stem cells used in transplant and embryonic stem cells
  • how blood stem cells grow into a new immune system
  • how bone marrow and stem cell transplants differ

This presentation can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer.

Finally, in Survivorship Resources on the Internet, Susan Steward, Executive Director of BMT InfoNet reviews resources on the internet that have information specifically designed for bone marrow, stem cell and cord blood transplant survivors.  Learn about key websites, chat rooms and list-serves that connect you with information about the issues you may encounter after transplant and link you with others facing similar challenges.

This presentation can be viewed online or downloaded to your computer.
