Trial identifier NCT01165788, BMT216, SU-07092010-6496

Summary

1. To explore specific aspects of social adaptation such as social connectedness, occupational outcomes and family relationships in lymphoma patients after autologous blood or marrow transplantation (BMT).

2. To investigate how social adaptation varies with time lapsed since BMT and with the life stage as determined by patient?s age. Understanding both the positive and negative aspects of cancer and cancer therapy leads to opportunities to promote adaptive strategies.
