Blood and Marrow Transplant


Blood and marrow transplant (BMT) is associated with decreased risk for relapsed disease for many patients with blood-based cancers. However, the treatment regimen is challenging, and patients may experience life-threating complications or long-term disability. Physical therapy can help patients manage symptoms, maintain function and improve mortality.

This course intends to provide the participants with familiarity regarding the BMT process. The speakers will discuss precautions related to blood values and potential treatment complications.

As with all areas of cancer survivorship, the population of BMT recipients has grown. The field of physical therapy is well-positioned to contribute to their improved function and quality of life.
