Erciyes Pediatrics Bone Marrow Transplantation Center broke a new ground in Turkey receiving JACIE Accreditation
Erciyes Pediatrics Bone Marrow Transplantation Center was recorded as a worldwide treatment center as a result of being accredited by JACIE (Joint Accreditations Committee of ISCT and EBMT) at the end of the studies lasted for 2 years.
Erciyes Pediatrics Bone Marrow Transplantation Center, which completed the preparatory process successfully and received JACIE accreditation, became the first and single pediatric transplantation center in Turkey.
All treatment services provided in our center thanks to JACIE accreditation approved by the Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research (IBMTR) and European Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT) were authenticated to meet international standards. During the following processes by means of this record, it is expected that significant increase in patient applications to our center from all over the world; particularly from Europe, will occur. The achievement of our center will contribute to the recognition, an increase in international collaborations of our university and to the improvement of this capacity in our country.
We would like to thank all our teaching staff, relevant staff and the staff of other institutions supporting studies in collaboration with us for their endeavours in this achievement and wish success.
What is JACIE?
JACIE, a common accreditation organ of International Society for Cell and Gene Therapy (ISCT) and European Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation (EBMT), is a process initiated to provide the adaptation of the centers to the standards and approved as a result of the supervisions by the authorities abroad.
The matter of convenience to the standards is evaluated by experienced external auditors and the accreditation authenticates that the relevant center offers treatments and services as equal standards as the ones in Europe and the USA.
What are acquisitions of JACIE Accreditation?
The fundamental aim of JACIE accreditation is to enable better medical treatment and services for the patients undergoing bone marrow transplantation and cellular treatment. In the studies consisting of hundred thousands patients, for allogenic transplantations the disease-free life-spans of patients having undergone transplantation in JACIE accredited centers were identified noticeably longer than the ones without any accreditation.
Of course, the most important acquisition is to offer the best service in European and worldwide standards for the children in our country who needs bone marrow transplantation.
Recognizing JACIE accreditation and Erciyes Pediatrics KIT Center at international standards will improve the reputation and prestige of both our university and country in the field of health, and considerably economical gains will also be provided for our country through health tourism.
