Abstract:
Administration/Leadership Development: FACT (Foundation for the Accreditation of Cellular Therapy) was established to promote high quality standards of practice for medical and laboratory management of blood and marrow cellular therapies. As of September 2008, 194/450 transplant centers were FACT accredited. The Blood and Marrow Transplant program at Roswell Park Cancer Institute (RPCI) is a centralized program with all aspects of FACT accreditation contained within a single campus: clinical, collection and cell processing is performed onsite. RPCI received their initial accreditation in 2003 and has successfully completed two subsequent accreditations. The means through which the RPCI Blood and Marrow Transplant (BMT) Team achieved accreditation provides a model for success. The focus and intent of the Transplant Program's model is to remain current with FACT regulations while incorporating these standards into daily clinical practices known Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The BMT Transplant Team developed a core group that was comprised of individuals who represented their respective areas of specialty. The core group members took ownership of the clinical, collection and processing standards; in this manner direct accountability was assigned for all aspects of the FACT Standards Manual. The core group remains a standing entity to provide a means through which data collection, QA/QI and clinical outcomes are addressed and amended. Direct patient care nurses are involved in the development and writing of applicable SOPs. It is through this involvement that staff nurses become knowledgeable and more aware of and compliant with established SOPs. As part of the ongoing process, staff nurses participate in evaluating patient responses to SOPs and make recommendations for changes; this contributes to the data base collection. The goal of the nurses as members of the BMT team and the team as a whole, is to focus on exceeding, not just meeting the FACT standards. The feedback from the direct care nurses establishes the critical feedback necessary to make changes that result in superior outcomes. The overall growth and constant improvement of the program relies heavily on these nurses and they are highly valued members of the team.
