What Outcomes of Hematopoietic Cell Transplant (HCT) Matter Most to Patients?

This activity consists of recorded presentations from the "27th Annual National Conference" held Oct. 15–17, 2018, in Minneapolis, Minn.

Outcomes of HCT, particularly those that matter most to patients, are of increasing importance. Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (PCOR) helps people and their caregivers communicate and make informed healthcare decisions, allowing their voices to be heard in assessing the value of healthcare options. This session will discuss how PCOR assesses the benefits and drawbacks of preventive, diagnostic, therapeutic, palliative, or health delivery system interventions to inform decision making, as well as highlight comparisons and outcomes that matter to the people affected by these interventions.
