“The Caregiver's Role Across the Bone Marrow Transplantation Trajectory”
“If we are successful in treating the disease, but threaten the integrity of the family unit what have we accomplished? The family caregiver is the glue holding the family together, and nurses are most often seen by these individuals as their ally, a safe person who can be counted on to provide support and needed information. Therefore, assessment of caregivers’ adaptation to the stress they are confronting is a crucial dimension of nursing care.”
-Dr. Diane Von Ah on the paper “The Caregiver's Role Across the Bone Marrow Transplantation Trajectory,” published in CANCER NURSING Volume 39, Issue 1.
