This program features important information by field experts and is designed for the physician and other healthcare providers to recognize and effectively treat patients with pathologic gambling disorder.

Optimizing Nursing Management of Hepatic Veno-Occlusive Disease
November 16, 2017 - November 15, 2018

Credits Offered: ANCC - 1.00; CERT OF COMPLETION - 1.00
Veno-occlusive disease (VOD), also known as sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, is a potentially life-threatening complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT), characterized by weight gain, fluid retention with ascites, tender hepatomegaly, and jaundice. The toxicity is believed to result from damage to hepatic sinusoidal endothelial cells, which causes obstructed sinusoidal flow that leads to liver dysfunction, multiorgan failure, and death. The incidence of VOD following HSCT is unclear due to variations in diagnosis but has been reported to be as high as 60%. Specific groups such as children, patients with previous hepatic injury, or those undergoing allogeneic HSCT (as opposed to autologous HSCT) are at increased risk, especially when the conditioning regimen contains chemotherapy, irradiation, or busulfan. In patients with severe cases, the mortality rate has been estimated to be greater than 80%. In addition, VOD has been associated with increased health care system resource utilization and costs (estimated to be $8,988 for mild cases and $41,703 for severe cases). Efforts to control the toxicity must therefore focus on primary prevention and strategies to monitor patients for signs and symptoms so that timely and effective treatment can be initiated.
