Abstract

Background: Patients undergoing hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) are often referred for physical therapy (PT) to help improve their quality of life. However, to our knowledge there is no clear PT pathway to guide therapists and patients before, during, and after HSCT. Methods: A comprehensive literature review was carried out exploring the role and benefits of PT in HSCT patients. The current evidence was comlimented with recommendations and opinions from the experts in the field, which included PT's and hematology consultants from PTAGVHD and the EMBMT group. Result: A clear pathway and protocol as a working guide for rehabilitation professionals working with the HSCT patient's was developed. Conclusion: This paper not only reviews the current evidence on safe PT practice but also puts forward a protocol and pathway for HSCT rehabilitation, highlights the importance of individualized exercise intervention for HSCT patients, and outlines safe practice guidelines for the physical therapists working in this field.
