Way of Saint James with Somos Nupa

The Spanish Patients' Association Somos Nupa organized the First Way of Saint James for children with intestinal failure, parenteral nutrition or multivisceral transplants. The activity was divided in three stages corresponding to different days, and the association made a video from each day. They succesfully arrived to Santiago de Compostela as it is appreciated in the picture above. They used the motto of "No impossible ways".

CPG Systematic Review Status

After finishing the Screening by Title and Abstract with more than 55,000 articles, around 4,500 were included for the Full text Screening. These papers have been already retrieved and are now being reviewed by our CPG team. This phase should be finished by the end of September to begin with the Data Extraction process.

CPMS Activity

TransplantChild members have already introduced 9 patient cases into the Clinical Patient Management System (CPMS) since March 2019. The objective is to have registered, at least, 38 cases by the end of February 2020.

To achieve this goal, our IT Helpdesk Support, Belén López, will be visiting two HealthCare Providers in the following month: Hannover Medical School, in Germany, and Centro Hospitalar e Universitário de Coimbra, in Portugal. Our Helpdesk will be helping the health professionals to introduce the cases into the CPMS and encourage them to collaborate in the panels that are still open.

International Summer School on Rare Diseases Registries and FAIRification of Data

Belén López and Gonzalo Sofío, members of the TransplantChild team working on the development of the TransplantChild registry, are attending the "International Summer School on Rare Diseases Registries and FAIRification of Data", organized by the European Joint Programme (EJP), that will take place in Rome from September 23rd to the 27th.

This course is composed of two training modules:
  • The first module “Rare Disease Registries” starts on September 23 till September 25, 2019, during these three days participants will learn (a) what resources are needed for the establishment / maintenance of a high quality registry (b) the features of successful strategies to ensure (i) long-time sustainability of the registry, (ii) quality, (iii) legal and ethical issues in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation and (iv) FAIR principles.
  • The second module “FAIRification of data”, starts on September 26 till September 27, 2019 during these two days participants, working with IT-trainers, will make use case data FAIR. The potential of a FAIR registry, as the basis for cross resource questions, will be demonstrated by executing a query across the use cases that become FAIR. In this part a time slot will be allocated to discuss FAIR data management and FAIR project planning.
The attendance to this summer school will help our network to clarify the most technical issues of the registry and finish the TransplantChild Registry Proposal.
