October 2016 Heart of MD Anderson
In Facilities Management there are many people working behind the scenes. You may never see them out and about, but we all benefit from their hard work and talent. One of those people is Malon Turner. “He’s always on time and at the end of the day if you need something extra, he’s always there to help,” says Mike Ramsey, a senior plumber. A plumber on our South Campus, Turner helps make sure that our facilities are running well so that our teams of esteemed researchers can focus on the work being done in their labs. “He exudes confidence and friendliness,” says his director, Randy Mikula. “His team members and the people he supports feel like Malon always has their back.” Because of the positive way he approaches his job and his dedication, Turner is October’s Heart of MD Anderson. Faith and positivity Turner’s faith is very important to him and it guides how he approaches each day at work. “I don’t do things to be praised,” he says. “It’s about doing what I can so that somebody can have a good day.” Turner’s positive approach is well known throughout his department. “He’s always thinking about others,” says Richard Thomas, a senior stationary engineer. “He tells everyone that’s why we’re here – to help other people.” Michael Justilian, a senior instrumentation technician, adds to Thomas’ description of Turner. “I know that when his feet hit the ground each day, he aims to make it a good day,” says Justilian. More than a job Turner began his career at MD Anderson 18 years ago as a maintenance technician. Over the years, Turner recalls that there have been many people who have inspired him and mentored him to help him learn his trade better. He tries to do the same. “If somebody was nice enough to bless me with their knowledge, I try to pass it on and help somebody, too,” he says. A recent example of this was when Turner volunteered to be a part of a pilot program for his department. In the pilot, he helped test a new software program that allows plumbers and other technicians to be more efficient with their work orders by recoding their daily operations out in the field on an iPad instead of paper. After the pilot finished, Turner took it upon himself to write up a document outlining his experience and feedback. “I want to do all I can to make the maintenance process a good experience,” he says. “The more we can speed up the turnaround time for repairs, the quicker our researchers can get back to their work.” For Turner, he knows that his work and the work of the people he supports is part of a larger purpose. “It’s bigger than us,” he says. “It’s about Making Cancer History.”

First scalp, skull transplant simultaneously with kidney and pancreas transplant
On May 22, 2015, a team of MD Anderson plastic surgeons conducted the first-ever scalp and skull transplant simultaneously with a kidney and pancreas transplant. The transplant, conducted on 55-year-old Austin software developer and leiomyosarcoma survivor James (Jim) Boysen, was first conceptualized by Jesse Selber, M.D., associate professor in Plastic Surgery at MD Anderson. “When I first met Jim, I made the connection between him needing a new kidney and pancreas and the ongoing anti-rejection medication to support them, and receiving a full scalp and skull transplant at the same time that would be protected by those same medications,” says Selber, who came up with the idea of conducting the scalp and skull transplant at the same time as the kidney and pancreas transplant. “This was a unique situation that created the opportunity to perform this complex transplant.” Selber worked with four MD Anderson plastic surgeons -- Mark Clemens, M.D.; Matthew Hanasono, M.D.; Edward Chang, M.D.; and Peirong Yu, M.D. -- and the transplant and reconstructive surgery teams from Houston Methodist Hospital.

Clinical Trials? Whats the Formula
Michael Fisch, M.D., Associate Professor and Chair of General Oncology at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center, talks about the importance of clinical trials not only for the patient but for all of the patients to come. Cancer clinical trials are cancer research studies that involve people. The main purpose of a clinical trial is to find a better way to prevent, diagnose or treat a disease. Clinical trials are part of a long, careful research process. Patients who participate in a clinical trial receive drugs or procedures that already have been researched in successful laboratory and/or animal studies. Most clinical trials study new drugs or procedures, but some study drugs or procedures that have already received approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Although your most important stakeholder, the patient's involvement is extremely limited. Reaching out to patients and gaining vital information helps you take better decisions. It improves consultancy time and generates better outcomes. If implemented cohesively, it reduces cost and improves wellness. This can only be achieved when stakeholders engage with each other over a common platform. To connect them healthcare is now digital and engages continuously. IIR Middle East has therefore chosen the Healthcare Innovation Summit as a platform to understand and identify: • Where innovation is really needed • What benefits have others gained • Who should lead it • How it could be implemented within your institution The best and brightest connected minds will converge during the four day Summit at the Dusit Thani Hotel, Dubai on 26 -- 29 January 2014. The pre and post conference workshop led by Aspen Institute and Duke Medicine respectively, will empower delegates with an implementation plan to engage their patient population and take better decisions.

This is why it is crucial that nurses educate patients about their disease and treatments, as well as establish a sense of trust between them.

Data Mining -- Excavating for Information
Data mining, the automatic or semi-automatic analysis of large quantities of data to extract previously unknown interesting patterns such as groups of data records, is a powerful tool in fundraising. This session will focus on implementing data mining and using the results. Two organizations, the University of Puget Sound and M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, will describe their use of data mining to identify prospects for specific fund raising initiatives. The University of Puget Sound developed an alumni attachment score to gauge which constituents are most closely connected to the University in an effort to identify the next tier of alumni with whom engagement efforts should be focused. Additionally, a planned giving ranking score is used to identify potential planned giving donors. M.D. Anderson Cancer Center launched the Moon Shot Program in 2012 with the goal of translating scientific discoveries into better patient care -- faster -- by using innovative technology, setting ambitious goals and transforming our approach to end cancer once and for all.

Peer-to-Peer Consultations with MD Anderson Cancer Network
http://bit.ly/1MSlVoj What is a peer-to-peer consultation with MD Anderson Cancer Network®? Mark Cripe, DO, a breast and melanoma surgeon at OhioHealth, explains. Dr. Cripe is an MD Anderson Certified Physician, and explains that through OhioHealth’s affiliation, MD Anderson certifies medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and surgeons. “One of the great things that we have access to, now that we’re affiliated with MD Anderson Cancer Network, is we have the opportunity to do what’s called a peer-to-peer,” says Dr. Cripe. A peer-to-peer is a consultation with an MD Anderson Cancer Network physician. The process involves submitting a patient’s case electronically, having it reviewed by an MD Anderson physician, and then setting up a phone call so that all physicians can discuss it together. According to Dr. Cripe, the relationship between OhioHealth and MD Anderson really validates what physicians at OhioHealth have been doing for years – taking great care of patients. He shares that even though this relationship is not apparent to many patients, it is helpful to discuss difficult cancer cases during a peer-to-peer. There is also an option of presenting unique cases to MD Anderson Tumor Boards, where all of the different affiliated sites can discuss them and learn from one another. Another benefit of peer-to-peer consultations, is that they give patients more confidence in the treatments that have been recommended for them. “It is nice to know, that for those really tough cases, for those very unique experiences, we have another person with MD Anderson Network affiliation,” says Dr. Cripe. “We can type in a peer-to-peer consultation and have those additional resources right on hand, even if it’s not in our backyard.” For more information about the OhioHealth affiliation with MD Anderson Cancer Network, please visit http://bit.ly/1SbUx0A

For more WORLD NEWS "SUBSCRIBE" US AUSTIN: A man whose cancer left him with severe damage to the top of the head has received what his doctors in Houston describe as the first skull and scalp transplant, the MD Anderson Cancer Center said on Thursday. James Boysen, a 55-year-old software developer from Austin, received the craniofacial tissue transplant at the same time as a kidney and pancreas transplant at Houston Methodist Hospital on May 22 in surgeries that lasted nearly a day, it said. "For this patient, it means a new lease on life," said Jesse Selber, a reconstructive plastic surgeon who was the co-leader of the team that performed the intricate surgery.

A photo of Boysen after the surgery shows him with sutures in a ring around the top of his head, about an inch (2.5 cm) above his ears, where the transplanted skull and scalp were attached.
