Blood and Marrow Transplantation Long Term Follow Up (LTFU) Project

Aim: The primary goal of this project is to develop clinical guidelines for management of patients following allogeneic blood and marrow transplant. The guidelines apply to adult patients and patients transitioning between paediatric and adult services, across metropolitan, regional, and rural areas.

Benefits: LTFU assists early recognition of complications, survival and quality-of-life issues for patients post-BMT transplant. These benefits have been supported by recently published guidelines including the Joint Recommendations of the European Group for BMT, the Centre for International BMT Research, and the American Society of BMT (1).
