Activity description

90099 - Breaking Good - A shared care project Allograft Survivorship Forum

GP Foundation Ltd

The Royal Melbourne Hospital has a world class bone marrow transplant unit. As part of our commitment to caring for our patients after we have established a survivorship clinic, which seeks to identify ways by which patients can maintain/improve their health and return to as full a recovery as possible after transplant. We have found that many of the important steps for returning to good health are best provided by primary practitioners (GPs). This project seeks to improve the way in which the hospital works with primary practitioners in order to deliver the best survivorship care in the best location.

Relevance to General Practice

This is a shared care model, with the aim of having GPs share the care of the allograft transplant recipients.

Learning outcomes

  1. Increase knowledge in Allogeneic bone marrow transplants (alloBMT) & graft versus host disease (GvHD)
  2. Understand how the shared care models for allogeneic survivorship care work
  3. Recognize the typical late effects seen in alloBMT patients
  4. Increase knowledge in recommended screening for alloBMT survivorship care
