Nurses Overcoming Educational Challenges with Caregivers of Pediatric Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant Patients Public
Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) is an intense and complicated
procedure that requires comprehensive education of the child, donor, and parents/caregivers. The nursesâ challenge is to teach parents/caregivers safe
and efficient care for their child. Nurses need to identify knowledge deficit and
social situations that would hinder or prevent the caregivers from reaching this goal. The Penn State Hershey Childrenâs Hospital Pediatric Stem Cell Transplant
Patient Care Guidelines binder was written and a DVD was produced to
effectively educate these families.
