This year’s quality boot camp will focus on a program’s Quality Management Plan and the annual review of the effectiveness of the overall Quality Management Program.  How do you evaluate each key quality topic and incorporate them into your program’s report?  The boot camp will discuss tools you may use and how topics may be presented to different groups within your program.  Join us for the day and work on Building Your Annual Quality Report.

The Inspector Training Workshop is for pre-approved clinical hematopoietic transplant, immune effector cellular therapy, and marrow collection inspector trainees. The workshop is designed to guide the trainee through the inspection experience; from accepting an inspection assignment through submitting the inspection report and participating in the Accreditation Committee Review.
