Abstract

The purpose of this internship practicum report is to analyze the pathophysiology and impact of anemia in low-income gynecologic cancer patients. The report also assesses the impact of erythropoietin on hemoglobin levels prior to gynecologic cancer surgery. This report is based on a clinical research study to determine whether or not erythropoietin will mitigate the suppression of bone marrow inherent to the gynecologic cancer population and alleviate some of the symptoms and side effects of the anemia.
