[Scientific session research presentation] The University of Minnesota Physicians has developed a relationship with Manipal Hospital in Bangalore, India to further healthcare information exchange between the two entities. The enhancement of Manipal Hospital's Blood and Marrow Transplant Program (BMT) was viewed as a key component of providing high quality care to the community. To determine what was necessary to enhance the BMT Program, an initial assessment of the program was conducted. Based on this assessment it was apparent that the most important factor to address was enhancing the staff's knowledge of BMT in light of the Indian culture and medical issues. After the initial assessment, the two BMT physicians from Manipal Hospital came to the University of Minnesota for one month to participate in further education related to BMT.  They in turn shared their expertise in the infectious diseases and differences in working with Indian culture. A four day basic BMT educational program was developed for the nursing staff, part one was conducted with 50 staff in two groups over a two week period.  A two day advanced BMT course was developed as well, and will be conducted with two groups, over one week in November 2006. Two nurses have been designated by Manipal Hospital to serve as the nurse coordinator and infection control specialist for the BMT program. They are scheduled to come to the University of Minnesota for two weeks of education in BMT patient care. Since the assessment, and throughout the educational phase, Manipal Hospital has performed basic autologous transplants.  Through the exchange of information, education at Manipal and at the University of Minnesota, the complexity of autologous transplant patients, and the volume of patients has increased.  This will continue to evolve over the next two years with ongoing support of the University of Minnesota Physicians.
