After your patient leaves the transplant center and returns to your care, your support is critical to your patient's long-term recovery and survival. We offer post-transplant care guidelines, which offer clinical recommendations for long-term screening, vaccinations and GVHD screening. These guidelines were developed in partnership with leading transplant organizations and based on peer-reviewed publications1-6.
