This workshop will provide discussion of nutrition management for acute and chronic GVHD using case studies to provide examples of real scenarios in practice. An overview of the history of the micriobiome in hematopoeitic cell transplantation will be addressed expanding to current understanding of clinical implications, and future directions for investigation at the bench and the bedside. Also the latest evidence on enteral and parenteral nutrition including appropriate indications, timing, tolerance, clinical outcomes, the impact on the microbiome and strategies to translate evidence into practice will be reviewed.
