JACIE Training Course

June 2-3  2016 in Southampton, United Kingdom

Twenty-one participants travelled to Southampton at the start of this month to attend the JACIE Course. This was the 65th JACIE event since 1999 which has seen over 1000 participants from the international transplant community learn about the accreditation process and how to work with the Standards.

On this occasion, the participants were almost all from the UK with the exception of one Swiss and one German. There was a mix of backgrounds with quality managers being the most numerous followed by physicians and nurses.

Over the two days of the event, the training team covered the process in detail and participants heard experts like Dr. Fergus Jack (Poole), Ms. Sarah Holtby (London), Dr. Claire Wiggins (Southampton) and Dr. Kim Orchard (Southampton) explain the standards with plenty of opportunities for exchanging views and solutions.

Similar to the event in Manchester in mid-2015, the high level of collective wisdom in the room was evident with almost everyone coming from centres that have already been through at least one accreditation cycle. From the JACIE team’s perspective, the value of these events lies as much in the opportunities to learn from the other participants as what is presented in the slides and talks so thanks to everyone who attended and for your positive feedback.

Save the Date!

The next training course is on October 6-7 in Barcelona, Spain and 26-27 in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. We also plan to announce another event in Sweden in November this year. For further details, contact education.events@ebmt.org
