FACT-SBTMO Accreditation Virtual Workshop for Transplant Programs in Brazil

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 9 :: Monday, December 7th, 2020

The second edition of the FACT-SBTMO Accreditation Workshop for transplant centers in Brazil occurred during an online event on October 27, 2020. The pre-conference event took place prior to the SBTMO 2020 Congress and was simulcast in both Portuguese and English. The virtual platform enabled program personnel throughout Brazil to participate in the workshop. Interactive sessions provided an overview of FACT Cellular Therapy Standards, emphasized the importance of a quality management program including document control and validation, and addressed areas that are challenging for new centers. Members from Hospital Israelita Albert Einstein, the first FACT-accredited program in Brazil, shared their experience in organizing and preparing for a successful inspection and accreditation process. Nearly 40 transplant centers in Brazil have expressed their interest and commitment to improving quality and safety through the FACT-SBTMO accreditation program.
