Mullett Appointed to Commission on Cancer

The University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center’s Dr. Tim Mullett has been appointed to the Commission on Cancer (CoC), a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to improving survival and quality of life for cancer patients across the country.

Mullett is one of eight surgeons from across the country elected to represent the fellowship for a three-year term.

Established by the American College of Surgeons (ACoS) in 1922, the multidisciplinary CoC establishes standards to ensure quality, multidisciplinary, and comprehensive cancer care delivery in health care settings; conducts surveys in health care settings to assess compliance with those standards; collects standardized data from CoC-accredited health care settings to measure cancer care quality; uses data to monitor treatment patterns and outcomes and enhance cancer control and clinical surveillance activities; and develops effective educational interventions to improve cancer prevention, early detection, cancer care delivery, and outcomes in health care settings.

Mullett began his career at UK in 1996 as a thoracic surgeon treating heart issues, but quickly changed his focus to one of Kentucky’s biggest problems: lung cancer. In addition to co-leading one of the major components of the Kentucky LEADS Collaborative to improve lung cancer survival, he also serves as medical director for both the UK Markey Cancer Center Affiliate and Research Networks.

The focus of the degree is leadership in the nursing profession through implementation of evidence-based practice that is research based.

Breeding’s dissertation, “Evaluating Public Health Nurses’ and Clinicians’ Self-Competency Level in the Treatment of Tuberculosis,” will soon be published online in the ProQuest Dissertation Database.

In addition to her dissertation project, Breeding completed 60 hours of classroom time and earned a 4.0 GPA. Her hard work didn’t go unrecognized: NKU Doctor of Nursing practice program faculty selected her as the Fall 2016 recipient of the DNP Practice Excellence Award. This award is given with four criteria: clinical competency and initiative of high degree; demonstrated accountability and responsibility for role transition as a DNP-prepared professional; initiative of a change in practice that enhances the practice of nursing; and excellent rapport with patients, staff, colleagues, organizations and local/state/regional entities.
