Our Program for Long-Term Care
The University of Minnesota Blood and Marrow Transplant program has developed an extensive long-term follow up program to provide risk-based health care and surveillance to transplant survivors. The Cancer Survivor Program is staffed by physicians, nurses, neuropsychologists, and social workers, who specialize in the needs of survivors and can provide a multidisciplinary clinical assessment.
- a comprehensive treatment review and summary
- physical examination
- referrals to sub-specialty care
- neuropsychological screening
- social services
- educational materials concerning the long term risks of treatment
Our team communicates with you and your primary physician following your evaluation to ensure that you continue to receive appropriate care years following transplant.
Our staff continues to study and learn about the long-term effects of hematopoeitic stem cell transplantation and is actively involved in many local and national research projects. Interested survivors are offered the opportunity to participate in these studies.
For an appointment or to learn more about the Cancer Survivor Program, please contact your transplant physician or contact the Journey Clinic at 612-365-8100. Our program welcomes patients from any transplant center.
