My Meetings Meeting Documents

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 how to effectively transition to the 7th Edition Hematopoietic Cellular Therapy Standards, CIBMTR data audits, clinical outcomes including center reported causes of low survival, and the accreditation of immune effector cellular therapy programs.

The afternoon session includes two different tracks: New Inspector Training Orientation and Common Citations. The Inspector Training track includes sessions on the FACT accreditation process, what documents to review before an inspection, the ins and outs of performing an onsite inspection, how to conduct an exit interview, and finally, how to make your case via the inspection report. The Common Citations track will review recent deficiencies and corrections related to commonly cited Standards in the areas of quality management, personnel, and donor information and consent to donate. Sessions are accompanied by exercises and group discussions to practically apply lecture concepts to real-world experiences.

Note: Inspector trainees are required to attend the New Inspector Training Orientation Track.
