The programme for the EBMT 2018 Annual Meeting is being finalised with a draft programme online at

For the Meeting of the Quality Management Group, we have opened a call for real-life cases to be presented on the following topics:
  • Session 1 - Competency Assessment - Solutions to meet Standard B/C/D 4.4.2 "A system to document ... competency for each critical function performed and continued competency at least annually."
  • Session 2 - Corrective and Preventive Actions - Long-term (1 year or more) impact of practice changing CAPAs relevant to Standard B/C/D 4.10.5
The topics will be distributed across two sessions with two cases presented in each session. The selected studies will be incorporated to the congress programme with a 10 minute presentation from the submitter with time for questions at the end of the session. Please note that where there are more submissions than presentation spots available, some cases might be assigned as a poster presentation. 

The presenters will receive free registration for the congress as well as travel and accommodation for 2 nights.

Anyone interested should complete the Case Forms (Competency Assessment, CAPAs Long Term Impact) and send it to The JACIE Quality Managers Committee will make the selection.
