Abstract

Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation is a therapeutic method which is not only used for the treatment of haematooncological diseases but also as a therapy for solid tumours and non-malignant diseases. Haematopoietic stem cell transplantation influences the further course of the disease and therefore the quality of life for patients in the same way as other therapeutic methods. The authors describe the evaluation possibilities for the quality of life and effect of selected aspects on quality of life of patients undergoing haematopoietic stem cell transplantation in the form of a review of the literature.
