    I would be willing to answer any questions regarding our BMT coordinator role. We have 3 coordinators, 1 full time and 2 part-time. They assist with pre-transplant coordination, assist with discharge education and schedule initial outpatient follow-up, as well as triage post-transplant phone calls. Patients receiving further therapy for their treatment plan (Neuroblastoma, lymphoma, etc) transfer back to their disease team and that case manager at approx day 30 post-transplant. Relapse patients also transfer back to their primary disease team and case manager.

    Hi everyone,

    I am exploring making some structural and/or process changes within our BMT nurse coordinator group. Currently our nurse coordinators perform all the pre-transplant care coordination but are not involved during hospitalization or post-transplant coordination. If you or some from your program would be willing to have a brief conversation to discuss the program structure and the extent of nurse coordination of care, it would be very helpful. I am also willing to answer questions in return as you need. Thank you advance for your help.
