Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) care is highly complex. This chapter focuses on the aspects of supportive care required following HSCT. Assessment tools are key component of nursing practice and are necessary for planning and providing patient-centered care. HSCT care must be planned, implemented, and evaluated and is underpinned by collaboration with the entire multidisciplinary healthcare team. With supportive care following HSCT, we ultimately aim to improve the quality of life of our patients in the posttransplant period. Supportive care extends beyond symptom management and includes social, psychological, and spiritual care. The needs of the patient are multifactorial and can be complex, considering multiple issues at the e time and involving multiple disciplines. Throughout supportive nursing care, our clinical competence is critical and is complemented by experience, knowledge, and awareness.
- Vulnerable Patients' Psychosocial Experiences in a Group-Based, Integrative Pain Management Program. [Journal Article]
- JAJ Altern Complement Med 2019; 25(7):719-726
- CONCLUSIONS: IPMP offers an accessible model for addressing psychosocial aspects of chronic pain. Vulnerable patients engaged with integrative medicine groups and developed new perspectives and tools for managing their pain; they emerged feeling hopeful and resilient. These results support the use of integrative medicine groups for targeting psychosocial aspects of chronic pain within primary care.

This study describes the optical coherence tomography and optical coherence tomography angiography features of three eyes of three patients affected by contractile morning glory syndrome. Optical coherence tomography angiography scans of the peripapillary retina revealed a dense microvascular network without any vascular difference between the superficial vascular plexus and the deep vascular plexus around the optic nerve. These optical coherence tomography angiography findings confirm that the contractile movement could be due to the presence of an autonomic cholinergic muscular mechanism in the posterior part of the globe. In fact in our cases, the contractile movement seemed to be induced by massage of the eyeball. Optical coherence tomography angiography is a valid, non-invasive, dyeless, and reliable method that could shed light on the pathogenesis of this rare disease of the optic disk.

The current author had the opportunity to present a study on the history of ear acupuncture at the International Summit Forum on Clinical Application of Acupoints in August 2018 (from August 25 to August 27), in Beijing, China, and to introduce the latest ear chart by Frank R. Bahr, MD, there. This article is based on that presentation and includes more historical facts. Although the relationship between the ear and meridians was discussed previously in the famous book, The Internal Classic of the Yellow Emperor (Huang Di Neijing), the first auricular map was published in 1888 by Zhenjun Zhang in his book Essential Techniques for Massage (Lizheng Anmo Yaosu). This map was a drawing of the posterior aspect of the ear showing areas of the five Zang organs: Heart; Liver; Spleen; Kidney; and Lung. Paul Nogier, MD, discovered ear somatotopy, a representation of the whole person on the ear in the shape of a homunculus, or inverted fetus, on the ear. Dr. Paul Nogier's ear map was first published in 1957. A more-detailed presentation, the Loci Auriculomedicinae, elaborated by Drs. Paul Nogier and Bahr as well as René J. Bourdiol, MD, appeared in 1974. A new edition will soon appear in French. Auricular medicine is an excellent method, but only if the ear points are located precisely. Preconditions for this ability are excellent knowledge of the ear's anatomy, documented on a very detailed modern ear chart, such as the one recently created by Dr. Bahr, and constant practice of pulse palpation according to Dr. Paul Nogier with the vascular autonomous signal.
