Just the FACTs, 2020 Volume 2

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 2 :: Monday, March 16th, 2020

It was great to see many of you at the TCT meetings in Orlando (I didn’t pack a warm enough jacket!) where the solid emergence of cell therapies was in constant evidence. The Quality Boot Camp was another smashing success, as were the applicant and inspector training courses at the FACT Inspection & Accreditation Workshop, and the cellular therapy leadership courses. I had an opportunity to make a presentation on FACT Immune Effector Cell Accreditation to the administrative track, which evoked many questions, some showing the importance of educating our administrative colleagues in the importance of coordinated, comprehensive, quality-driven care to optimize outcomes for our patients and the role community-driven accreditation plays. We had a chance to express our thanks to Mark Litzow for his many years of service on the FACT Board of Directors and as the first FACT Technology Committee chair. You are already missed, Mark! Travel restrictions and meeting cancellations are coming at a rapid pace and paper goods are flying off the shelves as COVID19 cases increase. Our patients would be among the greatest affected—if you are ill take care of yourself and stay home for their sake.

Hand wave from greater than 6 feet—see you soon.
