Registration is Open for the FACT Inspection & Accreditation Virtual Workshop!

Posted in :: 2020 Volume 6 :: Monday, August 24th, 2020

September 15, 2020 – 8:00 am to 3:00 pm CDT/13:00 to 20:00 GMT


When one door closes, another one opens – and FACT’s first ever Inspection & Accreditation Virtual Workshop makes these words ring true! We wish all of our stakeholders good health and safety, and are pleased to offer a new workshop format to allow us all to come together again. After all, learning never ends.

The workshop co-chairs, Ngaire Elwood, PhD and Joseph Schwartz, MD, MPH, have been working hard with the FACT Education Committee and the international panel of presenters to offer an elegant and interactive learning experience. Registrants can choose either the cord blood or apheresis track, and will also have the opportunity to ask questions directly to leaders in accreditation, cord blood, or apheresis in the Lunch with Leaders session.

Following a combination of presentations, recordings, activities, games, and discussions; workshop attendees will leave the event being able to:

  • Describe the accreditation process.
  • Evaluate documentation to ensure compliance.
  • Organize the on-site inspection process.
  • Plan a program tour.
  • Identify strategies to support a successful inspection.
  • Practice evaluating deficiencies.

The year 2020 has made it even more obvious that a culture of quality is critical to providing quality patient care. With no travel required and low registration fees, several colleagues at your institutions can register for the event, thereby developing an even deeper understanding of FACT accreditation at your program.

“See” you at the workshop!
