Non-HLA Barriers to Blood/Marrow Transplant

Activity description

Historically, the lack of finding a human leukocyte antigens (HLA)-match has been perceived as the largest barrier to blood/marrow transplantation (BMT). Many barriers besides a lack of suitably matched donors exist and can have an adverse impact on access and outcomes of BMT. This session will identify key barriers to BMT including barriers that prevent access to care, such as language and cultural differences; illiteracy; and environmental, geographic, genetic, and medical barriers. Ethical dilemmas that confront patients, families and medical practitioners will also be discussed.
