1. Prasanna Devi S. A study on improving certain pre transplantation decision issues related to kidney and corneal transplantation programs;.

Degree: 2013, Anna University

Organ transplantation is the most preferred treatment modality for patients with end-stage organ disease. At present the supply of cadaver organs is so inadequate as not to be commensurate with need. In India, there are very few Organ Procurement Organizations (OPO s) to supervise the activities of organ donation and transplantation at a national level. Our country seems to lack an active organ sharing network both at the state and national level. The present study focuses on integrating applications of systems and industrial engineering techniques to increase the number of organ transplants in India, particularly at the state level. i.e. in Tamil Nadu (Case study region). The different issues considered for the study include: A retrospective study of the renal failure patients was done to understand the association of the lifestyle factors and the Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD); A system dynamics simulation study was carried out to study the various dynamics involved in organ transplants, in particular corneal transplants.; A website has been designed, developed and launched to promote organ donation awareness among the community, which is most critical to increase the number of transplants in our country; Networking of approved Transplant Centres (TC s) and optimal location for setting up of OPO s were proposed using facility location P-median model. This will facilitate optimal distribution and allocation of deceased organs to recipients in the waiting list without organ wastage due to lapse of the Cold Ischemic Time (CIT); A simulation study was carried out on the world renowned different transplantation programmes and compared with the Cadaver Transplant Program (CTP) which is the only legalized transplantation program in India. The evaluation has been done to find out the waiting time of different blood group patients and the best serving programme for a particular blood type patient is thus recommended to minimize the waiting time of the patient. newline

2. Rocconi, Vicki F. Breast Cancer Specimen Collection, Handling & Adherence to ASCO/CAP Guidelines.

Degree: MSN, 2016, University of San Francisco

Breast Cancer Specimen Collection, Handling & Adherence to ASCO/CAP Guidelines Background Specimens removed from their blood supply begin to degrade immediately. Specimens are placed in formalin to halt the process of degradation. Under or over-exposure of specimens to formalin can result in false positive or false negative test results for estrogen receptors, progesterone receptors & Her-2/neu receptors. Goals & Objectives Improve the process of breast cancer specimen collection & handling and insure that the process is consistent with ASCO/CAP Guidelines (College of American Pathologists, 2013). The objectives included: Documentation of the time the specimen was removed from the blood supply. Documentation of the time the specimen was initially placed in formalin. Documentation of the cold ischemic time (the interval time between removal of the specimen from the blood supply until it is initially placed in formalin). The cold ischemic time will be 60 minutes or less. The total time the specimen remains in formalin will be a minimum of 6 hours and a maximum of 72 hours. The benchmark for these indicators was 90%. The Her-2/neu Positivity Rate of invasive breast cancer specimens will be within a range of 15 – 20%. Methods This quality improvement project consisted of three PDSA Cycles that each contained a planning phase, a retrospective chart audit, data analysis, and an intervention to improve the process. Patients who had undergone mastectomy or lumpectomy were selected for the chart audits. Results Documentation of the time the specimen was removed from the body improved from 87.5% to 95%. Documentation of the time the specimen was placed in formalin improved from 80% to 90%. The cold ischemic was calculated in thirty-eight of the forty-two charts, or 90%, an improvement from 82.5%. The cold ischemic times in forty-two of forty-two cases were within sixty minutes, or 100%. All specimens were in formalin longer than six hours. Twenty of forty-two cases were in formalin for seventy-two hours or less, or 48%. Seventeen of the twenty-two cases, (78%) in which the specimen spent over seventy-two hours in formalin were performed on either a Thursday or Friday. Out of the thirty-six patients who had a diagnosis of invasive breast cancer, six were positive for Her-2/neu. The Her-2/neu positivity rate of 19% was within the expected range of 15% - 20% (Wolf et al., 2013). Conclusions The interventions were successful in improving five of six indicators which met or exceeded their benchmarks. Advisors/Committee Members: Elena Capella, Carlee Balzaretti.
