Educational Opportunities

FACT's comprehensive, robust Education Program is responsive to the current needs of inspectors and organizations, providing extensive opportunities for all skill levels in all corners of the world. FACT educational sessions provide tools not only for achieving accreditation, but for ensuring quality patient care in accordance with the Standards.

The FACT Education Program is a multi-faceted program that provides a variety of educational tools, resources, and opportunities. It is designed to reach the entire inspectorate as well as a large base of cellular therapy programs and cord blood banks on a continuous basis. The Education Program has and will continue to improve and evolve over time based upon current issues, needs, and outcomes.

Training Workshops

Training workshops inform and update current and prospective inspectors on inspection requirements and explain the FACT accreditation requirements to cellular therapy program and cord blood bank personnel.

FACT workshops are offered in conjunction with the annual meetings of professional societies such as the American Society for Transplantation and Cellular Therapy (ASTCT), the International Society for Cellular Therapy (ISCT), the American Society for Apheresis (ASFA), and industry-wide meetings such as the Cord Blood Connect International Congress.

The QM sessions are designed to have a very specific focus, enabling focused and in-depth instruction, collaboration, and peer involvement during each session. Participating in the entire series creates a more comprehensive understanding.
