Current Issue Highlights

Transplantation has always been highly introspective and data-driven, arguably leading the way with specific metrics to assess program performance. However, the surgical aspects of transplant performance have been less explicitly examined. This month, Parekh et al, in a Special Article, outline a new collaborative effort between the American Society of Transplant Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons: the Transplant Quality Improvement Program (TransQIP). Modeled after the well-established and more general National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP), TransQIP will provide a standardized approach toward quality improvement and a means of benchmarking surgical performance across national centers. Cover figure by Lauren Halligan, Duke University Department of Surgery.

Transplant-Specific Quality Improvement Program Enters Beta Phase

This month, “The AJT Report” takes a dive into TransQIP, the quality improvement program specific to transplant surgery. We also look at the declining rates of basic science research conducted by surgeons, and what impact that may have on the field of transplantation.
