Abstract:
TIns work represents a significant contribution to the body of knowledge in the area of renal transplantation as it brings together the research related to policy analysis, empirical research, and cultural and religious issues related to organ donation and transplantation among South Asians in the UK. The candidate's work in this area is the first in the UK to systematically document and map a national picture of kidney transplant waiting lists and to identify and examine the complex reasons underlying how and why patient ethnicity impacts upon the likelihood of receiving a kidney transplant. The candidate has also developed a new evidence-base exploring the adequacies of the existing procurement arrangements and the implications of introducing any alternative policies within the context of a multi-ethnic and multifaith UK. Finally, the candidate's work has focused on developing an evidence-base of the public perceptions, attitudes, and religious viewpoints towards organ donation and transplantation among a cross-section ofthe South Asian population. The candidate's published works have been the foundation blocks for stimulating and informing the debate on the provision of renal transplant services for minority ethnic groups through the generation of an empirical evidence-base in a subject area which has traditionally relied upon anecdotal evidence. The evidence-base illuminates a very complex issue which has multi-faceted solutions that need to be addressed in different settings.
