DescriptionThis Quality and Donor Suitability Workshop will be educational and interactive, providing the attendee with a better understanding of not only significant steps involved with donor screening, but also how to effectively implement a quality program. Popular roundtable discussions on hot topics are planned, and challenging quality management and donor case studies will be discussed in an open forum. Audience participation and learning from each other is expected!
