Huidig tekort aan nierdonoren kan verminderd worden

Friday, 21 November 2014

Door innovatieve algoritmen te gebruiken bij nieruitwisselingsprogramma’s kan het huidige tekort aan nierdonoren duidelijk verlicht worden. In het bijzonder kunnen daarbij de gezondheidsuitkomsten voor nierpatiënten verbeterd worden en schaarse transplantatiemogelijkheden voor moeilijk-te-matchen patiënten beschermd worden.Het is mogelijk het aantal transplantaties bij de meest kritieke patiëntgroepen met meer dan 55 procent te laten stijgen. Dat is de conclusie uit het proefschrift ‘Clearing Barter Exchange Markets: Kidney Exchange and Beyond’ van econometrist Kristiaan Glorie. Hij verdedigt zijn proefschrift donderdag 27 november aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam.

According to her findings, bad press on its own is enough to create a behavioural change in the financial world.
