Study: Burnout common among transplant surgeons
Drugs.com
Transplant surgeons often feel emotionally drained and overextended, which are red flags for burnout, a new study suggests. Nearly half of the transplant surgeons in the study reported having a low sense of personal accomplishment and 4 out of 10 admitted to feeling emotionally exhausted, researchers found.

Study: Liver transplants from living donors lead to better survival
By Karen Zabel
For years, research data gathered from nationwide studies provided evidence that liver transplant recipients had an improved chance of survival when they received a liver from a deceased donor compared to a live-donor liver. But a new study from Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania suggests that's just not so. In fact, the researchers report that living-donor transplants can actually offer superior outcomes compared to livers from deceased donors.

Daylight is the best medicine, for nurses
Medical Xpress
For the health and happiness of nurses — and for the best care of hospital patients — new Cornell research suggests exposure to natural light may be the best medicine. In a forthcoming Cornell study published in the journal Health Environments Research and Design, Rana Zadeh, assistant professor of design and environmental analysis, discovered nurses who had access to natural light enjoyed significantly lower blood pressure, communicated more often with their colleagues, laughed more and served their patients in better moods than nurses who settled for large doses of artificial light.

Depletion of T regulatory cells promotes natural killer cell-mediated cardiac allograft vasculopathy
Transplantation
A role for natural killer cells in cardiac allograft vasculopathy was suggested by our earlier observation that CAV arises even in the absence of detectable antidonor T-cell or B-cell reactivity in parental to F1 mouse heart grafts. However, prevention of CAV in this setting required the depletion of both NK and CD4+ T cells.

Organ shortage prompts debate over compensating donors
San Francisco Chronicle
More than 120,000 people in the U.S., 20 percent of them in California, are currently waiting for organ donations, according to the California Transplant Donor Network. The average wait time for a kidney is three to five years, and an estimated 18 people die every day waiting. That long waiting list has some people arguing that living donors should be compensated, with money or some other benefit, to tempt more of them to come forward.

Big data in organ transplantation: Registries and administrative claims
American Journal of Transplantation
The field of organ transplantation benefits from large, comprehensive, transplant-specific national data sets available to researchers. In addition to the widely used Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network-based registries (the United Network for Organ Sharing and Scientific Registry of Transplant Recipients data sets) and United States Renal Data System data sets, there are other publicly available national data sets, not specific to transplantation, which have historically been underutilized in the field of transplantation.

The Nurse Licensure Compact: Is expansion inevitable?
By Keith Carlson
Many nurses are unaware of the fact that the Nurse Licensure Compact, or NLC, has been in existence for years. The NLC allows registered and practical/vocational nurses living and working in 24 member states to move among those jurisdictions without having to apply for a new license. With continued shortages of nurses in certain regions, it would behoove our healthcare system to be more flexible, allowing nurses to have the freedom to go where their help is needed most. Thus, this begs the question: Should the NLC be aggressively expanded?
