Have you or a loved one undergone a stem cell or bone marrow transplant? Your input is needed on a review considering anti-thymocyte globulins for preventing graft-versus-host disease

Skills / interests: Consumer (public, patient, carer) input

Would you be interested in helping us with this article focused on a type of treatment specifically aiming to prevent graft-versus-host disease (a serious treatment side effect) in people undergoing an allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplant?

 

I am looking for a consumer who would be willing to peer review this Cochrane systematic review “Polyclonal anti-thymocyte globulins for the prophylaxis of graft-versus-host disease after allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplantation in adults”

 

Cochrane considers a consumer to be a person with experience of the condition (in this case, any disease treated with an allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplant), either as a patient or as a carer/family member of a patient. From a consumer perspective, we are interested if the language of the review, especially the language used in the Plain Language Summary, is accessible and if it feels relevant for those undergoing an allogeneic stem cell or bone marrow transplant, such that it will be helpful to patients and carers with healthcare decision making.

 

While you are welcome to provide feedback on any aspect of the review, you can focus your attention on the summary sections. Our aim is for this to be a manageable task, that does not overburden consumer reviewers.

 

Thank you in advance for considering!
