The registration period for this meeting has ended.

The blood and marrow transplant field has been a leader in voluntarily improving quality, and accredited Clinical Programs are currently adapting to several new FACT Standards and procedural changes to the accreditation process. This workshop will provide background on these changes. The morning workshop sessions include major topics such as clinical outcomes benchmarking, joint FACT/CIBMTR data audits, and immune effector cell requirements. FACT will also present information on the New FACT Accreditation Portal and demonstrate the overall application workflow for applicants and inspectors.

The afternoon session includes two different tracks: Accreditation Process and Standards. The Accreditation Process track includes sessions on the FACT accreditation process, being prepared on inspection day, trainee inspector orientation, and demonstrating compliance on inspection day. The Standards Track will highlight 6th edition common citations, outline donor management issues, clarify the 6th edition continuing education requirements, and discuss coordination of care. Sessions are accompanied by exercises and group discussions to practically apply lecture concepts to real-world experiences.

Note: Inspector trainees are required to attend all four sessions in the Accreditation Process track. All other applicants may choose which sessions to attend in the afternoon and are encouraged to attend sessions in both tracks as they fit educational needs.
