Project Information

Optimization of lung transplant immunosuppression

Project Description: The lung transplant program at UF Health Shands has noticed a high incidence of acute cellular rejection and is evaluating potential contributing factors. The immunosuppression medication regimen, both at time of transplant (induction) and after transplant (maintenance), is very important for graft survival. This quality improvement project will review the medical regimens of recent adult lung transplant recipients to ensure appropriate intra-operative administration as well as therapeutic maintenance immunosuppression.
