Posted in :: 2020 Volume 1 :: Monday, January 27th, 2020

The recently published book, Best Practices of Apheresis in Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation (Abutalib et. al., 2020), includes a large number of topics relating to the use and performance of apheresis in hematopoietic cell transplantation. The book is described as a practical resource for clinicians ranging from residents to faculty members and other healthcare personnel. The book is available for purchase in its entirety or by individual chapters.

FACT President Dennis Gastineau, MD wrote Chapter Three, FACT-JACIE Standards: Common Citations and How Best to Avoid Them. The chapter on citations focuses on deficiencies found in apheresis facilities during on-site FACT inspections. Dr. Gastineau briefly describes the citations and then suggests methods for avoiding them in future inspections.
