Myeloma Institute for Research and
The Myeloma Institute for Research and Therapy (MIRT)
is recognized both nationally and internationally for its leadership in the
treatment of multiple myeloma and other cancers of the bone marrow
responsive to stem cell transplantation. The MIRT program at UAMS is unique
as it provides this highly specialized care in the Outpatient setting. Many
of these patients, if seen elsewhere, would be admitted to an Inpatient
unit, sometimes for periods of months. The program has provided over 10,000
stem cell transplants since its start. The MIRT program includes a 30 bed
Inpatient unit located in the Ward Tower of UAMS Hospital, and an Outpatient
Infusion and Transplant Clinic located on the 4th floor of the Winthrop P.
Rockefeller Cancer Institute.
Team members include physicians, registered nurses,
advanced practice nurses, clinical pharmacists, transplant coordinators,
insurance liaison nurses, dietitians, social workers, chaplains, physical
and occupational therapists, and psychologists. This team provides
continuity of care for all patients receiving stem cell transplants, both
autologous and allogeneic.
Nurses are an integral part of the multidisciplinary
team providing care to these patients. Our nurses see these patients daily,
sometimes for many weeks, to give chemotherapy, supportive care treatments
and stem cell transplants. Without nurses providing the hands-on care, many
of these patients would require hospitalization for their treatment.
