Transfusion dependence a barrier to quality end-of-life care for some with Leukemia

Transfusion dependence a barrier to quality end-of-life care for some with Leukemia

For patients with advanced leukemia, access to high-quality end-of-life care appears to be reduced in those dependent on blood transfusions, according to a new study being presented during the 59th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting and Exposition in Atlanta. The study associates this reduced access and consequent diminished use of hospice services with a reduced quality of end-of-life care for these patients.
