Before electronic records become operational, patient-held records provide an opportunity to improve communication between patients and healthcare professionals. Our aim was to design the appropriate organization, layout and content for such a shared record for breast cancer management, based on a consensus between the various stakeholders. We therefore(More)
BACKGROUND It has been suggested that the age of human organ donors might influence islet isolation and transplantation outcome in a negative way due to a decrease of in vivo function in islets isolated from older donors. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed 332 islet isolations according to donor age. We determined isolation outcome by islet yields,(More)
BACKGROUND Whether islet transplantation should be aimed at restoring insulin independence or providing adequate metabolic control is still debated. The GRAGIL2 trial was designed as a phase 1-2 study where primary outcome was the rate of insulin independence, and secondary outcome was the success rate defined by a composite score based upon basal(More)
BACKGROUND Rigorous assessment of health-related quality of life (HRQL) is mandatory to establish the benefits of islet transplantation. METHODS The 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) and the Diabetes Quality of Life (DQOL) scales were completed by patients included in an Islet Transplantation Alone (ITA) trial (n = 10) and an Islet After Kidney(More)
BACKGROUND The influence of islet transportation on pancreatic islet allotransplantation in type 1 diabetic patients was evaluated within the GRAGIL network. PATIENTS AND METHODS From December 2001 to April 2003, 16 human pancreatic islet transplants were performed in 9 type 1 diabetic patients with an established kidney graft (functioning for at least 6(More)
BACKGROUND Since the Edmonton trial in 2000, increasing numbers of transplant centers have been implementing islet transplantation programs. Some institutions have elected to associate in multicenter networks, such as the Swiss-French GRAGIL (Groupe Rhin-Rhône-Alpes-Genève pour la Transplantation d'Ilots de Langerhans) consortium. METHODS All pancreata(More)

UNLABELLED Allowing cancer patients to hold medical records containing essential information for managing their disease may improve their satisfaction and the coordination of their medical care. OBJECTIVE Our aim was to determine breast cancer patients' interest in and expectations of such medical records and the exchange of information during their(More)
BACKGROUND The conditions of use and access to medical records have become an important source of interest in the last decade. In this context, our main objective was to assess the impact of a paper patient-held records, shared with healthcare professionals. METHODS In the particular case of breast cancer management, we identified the expectations of(More)
