ISCT-FACT Cord Blood Quality Boot Camp

Pre-Conference Workshop
Wednesday, May 3
08:00 - 16:30

The Boot Camp will strengthen participants’ quality assurance knowledge through pre-meeting exercises and an in-person workshop. Participants are encouraged to review aspects of their organization’s quality program in preparation and bring specific documents to the meeting for advice.

During the Boot Camp, quality experts will present important concepts and lead roundtables where participants may ask questions and help each other reach their goals. Participants are strongly encouraged to register early.

Each month prior to the in-person meeting, registrants will receive a short self-assessment to asses a quality management principle as it relates to their organization (answers can be submitted anonymously). The Quality Boot Camp will be designed around the challenges and successes illustrated by the survey results.

Please note Continuing Medical Education credits are not available for this event.
