The QM abstracts topics are: Accreditation; Quality management; Regulatory issues; Sharing best practices.
The deadline for submission for Physicians, Data and Quality managers is 15 December 2015 so there is still time to prepare.
If you need some inspiration, have a look at Tuula Rintala’s talk from EBMT 2015 on “EBMT Annual Meeting Abstract – What do we look for?”
October 1-2 2015 in Barcelona, Spain26 physicians, scientists, nurses and quality managers from 11 countries - Belgium, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Slovenia, Spain, The Netherlands, Norway and UK - attended the two-day event.
The course blended inspector training with content of general interest with regard to the Standards and the accreditation process. There was plenty of interaction between the participants which we believe is one of the main benefits of these courses where challenges and solutions are shared (even if it means that suffer a little with time management!).
Iris Bargalló, Raquel Espada and Eoin McGrath (JACIE Office staff) led much of the course with a mix of presentations and exercises to keep the content ‘fresh’. We were also fortunate to count on the participation of Aurora Vassanelli (Verona, Italy), Ivana Ferrero (Turin, Italy) and Miguel Lozano (Barcelona, Spain) - all experienced inspectors – who helped to ensure that the requirements of the Standards were ‘translated’ into the day-to-day work of the participants.

One participant enjoyed “the good atmosphere, very interactive”. A quality manager said “[it was] a very good course, very useful [and] well prepared”. A physician participant described the course “as fantastic and very informative” while another attendee said “I thoroughly enjoyed it …. food for thought”.
Participants enjoyed dinner at the Semproiana restaurant, a short walk from the course venue.
JACIE is grateful for the generous support from our sponsors Therakos. The course was approved for CME credits by the EHA.
The next JACIE course is on October 6-7 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. However we firmly expect to run another course in the UK in early June next year and hope to organise other events elsewhere during the course of the year. Information will be posted on the EBMT and JACIE websites in due course. Keep an eye on the educational section of the EBMT website.
