IIT: Ph2 Home Care Study Autologous Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation - 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 lead to better outcomes.

What is the Condition Being Studied?

Autologous (From Yourself) Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

Who Can Participate in the Study?

Adults ages18-80 who:
- Are scheduled to get an autologous stem cell transplant for any type of illness
- Are able to read and write in English
- Have a home that is close to Duke, or are staying in approved temporary lodging (e.g., hotel) that is close to Duke

The caregivers of people receiving these transplants can also participate.
