Abstract

The unique transfusion needs of a hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) patient require collaboration between the Clinical Transplant and Transfusion Medicine services. Successful interaction is essential to the optimal management of HSCT patients with the goals of reducing the risk of alloimmunization, infection transmission, and avoiding potential medical errors.
