Patient-education information provided to patients undergoing progenitor cell transplantation (PCT) is complex. Patients' and caregivers' inability to process this information and apply principles of self-care can result in poor outcomes. An interdisciplinary team developed a three-part modular teaching program and documentation tool to address the complex informational needs of patients undergoing PCT. The modules were designed to reflect information relative to the three phases of PCT: pretransplantation, transplantation, and post-transplantation. The structured content of the documentation tool allows for consistent documentation that systematically reflects the content of the patient-education modules.
