Necessitats de la població jove envers la donació de medul·la òssia: creació d’una aplicació

The bone marrow is a tissue of the organism that is inside of some bones, such as iliac crests and sternum. It is responsible for synthesizing cells called hematopoietic progenitors, known colloquially as stem cells, which give rise to the blood cells that are found in the veins and arteries. The involvement of this tissue due to a haematological disease is reflected in the malfunction of the marrow and, as a result, the anomalies on blood cells. The donation of hematopoietic progenitors allows the treatment of these diseases, but the lack of information disclosure causes real donors to be few. Objective: To create an application (APP) for healthy young people, from 18 to 40 years old, in order to raise awareness of the importance of the donation of hematopoietic progenitors, based on the necessary information, without the need of particular cases. Methodology: To carry out this project, a bibliographic research was carried out during the process, surveys, interviews and social networks were used to verify the response of the population to the possible creation of an application on the donation of the bone marrow. Finally, two computer programs have been used to design the different screens of the application. Results: The needs of the population have been explored about the lack of bone marrow information through different resources. Social networks allow reaching a wide range of people, whether they are interested in the specific topic or not. Finally, the model of the application initially considered has been created, but it would be convenient to carry out a thorough and exhaustive study of the real information needs that are lacking in the population

Abstract: The bone marrow is a tissue of the organism that is inside of some bones, such as iliac crests and sternum. It is responsible for synthesizing cells called hematopoietic progenitors, known colloquially as stem cells, which give rise to the blood cells that are found in the veins and arteries. The involvement of this tissue due to a haematological disease is reflected in the malfunction of the marrow and, as a result, the anomalies on blood cells. The donation of hematopoietic progenitors allows the treatment of these diseases, but the lack of information disclosure causes real donors to be few. Objective: To create an application (APP) for healthy young people, from 18 to 40 years old, in order to raise awareness of the importance of the donation of hematopoietic progenitors, based on the necessary information, without the need of particular cases. Methodology: To carry out this project, a bibliographic research was carried out during the process, surveys, interviews and social networks were used to verify the response of the population to the possible creation of an application on the donation of the bone marrow.
