ABSTRACT Objective: to identify and map health care aimed at onco-hematological patients in times of Coronavirus 2019. Methods: this is a scoping review, anchored in the Joanna Briggs Institute theoretical framework, registered in the Open Science Framework, with searches carried out in June 2021, through searches in the databases. Results: a final sample consisting of 20 articles was obtained, with emphasis on general care, treatment and stem cell donation. The most reported care was the use of telemedicine, screening for Coronavirus Disease 2019, compliance with prevention practices and, in case of infection, postponing procedures. Conclusions: the study gathered the main evidence on care aimed at treating these patients in times of a pandemic. Such measures help in the clinical management with the objective of proceeding with treatment amidst the injuries caused, thus minimizing possible complications.
