N1221 Evaluating quality: introducing quality management in London stem cell transplant programmes
Tuula Rintala (London, UK)
In the UK, approximately 2,700 Haematopoietic Progenitor Cell (HPC) transplants are carried out annually with most transplants (in terms of absolute numbers) taking place in the London Transplant Centres. Quality of care is an increasingly important issue in health care and in HPC transplantation the driver for implementation of quality management has come from the JACIE accreditation scheme.
The aim of the research project was to analyse the key challenges in implementing Quality Management in London Stem Cell Transplant Centres. The project analysed these challenges in the context of three key areas: What was the key driver for implementing quality management; what was the most challenging aspect of introducing quality management; and what impact has the introduction of quality management had in the participating centres....more


P791 The effect of JACIE standards implementation on risk management in the JACIE accredited centre
Katerina Steinerova, Vladimir Koza, Pavel Jindra, Daniel Lysak, Michal Karas, Samuel Vokurka, Tomas Svoboda, Marcela Hrabetova (Pilsen, CZ)

Background: risk management is the identification and assessment of every critical situation followed by coordinated application of resources to minimize, monitor, and control the probability and/or impact of unfortunate events. In a SCT programme, this assumes that the Quality Management System(QMS) is well established and set up to identify potential risks for patient and donor safety. Our center is JACIE accredited since 2008 for all facilities-Clinical Unit (CU), Apheresis Unit (AU) and Cell Processing Laboratory (CPL). These parts represent complex SCT transplantation programme with a single QMS. Methods:based on the analysis of adverse event reporting we retrospectively(2008-2011) identified some critical situation during the transplant process and determined the risk factors. ..more

P792 Identification, categorisation and mapping of indicators used by JACIE-accredited stem cell transplantation programmes reveal an uneven distribution and coverage of processes
Olivia Caunday, Odette Agulles, Eoin McGrath, Fabienne Empereur, Jean-Francois Stolz, Christian Chabannon (Nancy, FR; Barcelona, ES; Marseille, FR)

More than 145 European hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) programs received JACIE accreditation since 2000, demonstrating compliance with FACT-JACIE international standards. The association of JACIE with improved patient outcome was recently documented. Conditions in which quality management systems were introduced and actual benefits remain to be fully evaluated.
The study explores one aspect of quality management: introduction and use of indicators. Through a questionnaire sent to JACIE accredited centers, we aimed at identifying indicators (name, domain of application, category, longevity and general description), understanding how they were set in place, whether or not similar indicators were used by different programs, and whether all of the HSCT processes were monitored. ... more

P794 Cooperation of Dutch quality officers in haematology
Bernadette Odijk, Bianca Wauben on behalf of the Nederlandse Kwaliteitsmedewerkers Hematologie (NKH)
Occasion: During EBMT 2011 quality officers in England and Scotland presented a deliberation structure that was well functioning. In the Netherlands there was also a need for adaptation and deliberation. Several quality officers took the initiative to check if adaptation and deliberation could be formed. Therefore a meeting took place in April 2011 with a small group of different institutes.
Goal: To achieve cooperation and deliberation between quality officers of the department Haematology in the Netherlands
Method: Quality officers were invited by e-mail for a meeting of orientation at June 1st 2011.
Results: On account of this meeting in April 2011 a decision was made to respond collectively to the DRAFT version of the FACT-JACIE International Standards 5th edition....more

P797 The regulatory issues concerning a university Cappadoccia centre
Melek Bilge Pinarbasi, Ali Unal, Mustafa Cetin, Bulent Eser, Leylagul Kaynar, Yavuz Koker (Kayseri, TR)
Erciyes University is located in the outskirts of Kayseri which has a population 942.000 people. Kayseri has a great historical background dating back to 2000 B.C. but its main frame was attained as a center of the Cappadocia region in the period of Romans, and took the name of Caesar-Kayseri
Erciyes University Cappadoccia Bone Marrow Transplantation Unit was established in 1997 with 8 beds and now it is serving with a capacity of 39 beds in new and own transplant hospital building, with modern and last technology facilities; apheresis unit, processing laboratory... more

P788 Operative protocol for assessing cryopreserved PBSCs quality: a single-centre experience
Antonella Pontari, Elisa Spiniello, Patrizia Scaramozzino, Olga Iacopino, Ida Callea, Antonia Dattola, Cristina Garreffa, Giuseppe Gallo, Massimo Martino, Giuseppe Irrera (Reggio Calabria, IT)
Introduction: It is known that biological and functional properties of peripheral blood stem cells (PBSCs) have a significant role in influencing the transplant outcome. Based on this consideration, we have established and applied an internal operative protocol of quality controls, with the aim of defining the graft validation, respecting international guidelines... more

P 789 Cell viability: a protocol of comparison and validation between cellular products and correspondent samples
A Dattola, C Garreffa, E Spiniello, I Callea, A Pontari, P Scaramozzino, O Iacopino, D Princi, R Monteleone, G Irrera (Reggio Calabria, IT)
Introduction: in the cryopreservation process of hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPC) the viability control after thawing has a crucial role. Such control is useful to confirm the validity of cryopreservation, storage and thawing processes. Therefore, we set up a internal protocol to determine how much the cell viability verified on the samples is representative of the correspondent cryopreserved HPC products. In our protocol, the viability must be available at HPC thawing time and carried out previously on an accompanying sample cryopreserved and stored in the same conditions of HPC product.
Methods: 109 HPC products and relative samples have been valued after thawing at 37°C to check the viability of total nuclear cells (TNC) using a vital test (7-AAD). The data have been analyzed using the independent sample test (T Test)... more

P 1251 The route map of learning for health care support workers: developing a competency assessment for unregistered staff
Helen Nisbett (Sutton, UK)
The RCN has acknowledged that in the last 5 years there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of health care support workers (HCSW’s) working within the NHS (RCN 2007). As such the nature of nursing care delivery is changing and increasingly essential nursing care of vulnerable patients is being delivered by health care support workers in collaboration with registered nursing staff. It has also been recognised that there is a vast difference in expectations and job role clarification for HCSW’s across the NHS, leading to some disparity surrounding competencies and appropriate delegation of tasks. The CQC, DoH, NMC and the RCN have therefore called for some level of professional regulation for HCSW’s to improve patient safety and to set general standards for education and competency that could be transferable between trusts... more
