In this activity, experts in blood and marrow transplantation illuminate the roles of various members of the transplant team in the overall approach to diagnosing and treating VOD/SOS, while also offering learners a window into how hematologist-oncologists, transplant specialists, advanced practice clinicians, radiologists, pathologists, nurses, pharmacists, and other team members can collaborate to overcome the many challenges of VOD/SOS. Upon completion of this activity, participants should be better able to: Explain the clinical signs, symptoms, and medical burden of VOD/SOS to patients preparing for transplantation, Apply team-based approaches to risk assessment and diagnostic confirmation of VOD/SOS, including interpretation of clinical symptoms/disease onset and use of techniques such as ultrasound imaging or other strategies as appropriate, Use modern adverse event severity grading models to determine the presence and severity of organ dysfunction in patients with a VOD/SOS diagnosis, Recommend appropriate team management options for adult and pediatric patients with VOD/SOS in the post-HCT setting.
