Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation Nutrition Care Criteria, 3rd Edition, 2012

Cost: $50
Developed by the Medical Nutrition Therapy Services of:
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance

A problem-oriented approach to nutrition management of patients undergoing high-dose chemotherapy or irradiation followed by transplantation from a stem-cell source. Clinical indicators of a problem are defined, and appropriate evaluation, interventions and outcomes are described in this comprehensive, 202-page manual. The criteria are supplemented with detailed nutrition-assessment methods and tables. Drug-nutrient interactions, herbal-and-vitamin guidelines, and terminology pertinent to the hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT) population are included. A special section describes food safety, diet-and-water guidelines for the immunosuppressed HCT patient, plus diet guidelines for those with gastrointestinal graft-versus-host disease. Standard-practice guidelines for managing total parenteral nutrition, fluids and electrolytes, hyperglycemia and osteoporosis are also highlighted. Clinicians working with HCT patients will find this book an excellent resource for nutrition management of this population.
