IIT: Ph2 Stem Cell Transplantation Medical Home Care Comparison to Standard Hospital Care - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

We are doing this study to compare the outcomes of people who get their after-transplant care in the hospital versus in their home. This study is important to learn if getting after-transplant care in a patient's home can lessen costs and reduce unwanted outcomes.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Allogeneic (Donor Cells) Stem Cell Transplant

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Adults ages 18-80 who:
- Are scheduled to get an allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplant for any type of illness
- Have a home that is safe to live in during after-transplant care and is close to Duke

The caregivers of people receiving these transplants can also participate.
