Assessor Information

The AABB Accreditation Program promotes the highest standard of care for patients and donors in all aspects of transfusion medicine and cellular therapies. It is the intent of the program that accreditation be recognized at both a national and international level. This is accomplished by the administration of the Assessor Program.

The AABB assessors are a vital part of the AABB Accreditation Program. AABB Assessors are highly skilled healthcare professionals from accredited organizations. They bring their invaluable experience, knowledge and insight to AABB facilities worldwide.

The AABB Accreditation Assessor Program provides volunteer professional training in auditing techniques, quality program and operations, and the competitive, legal and ethical issues associated with assessments. With this training assessors are able to evaluate a facility’s Quality and Operational systems to determine whether the service they provide is appropriate and in control. The program provides both the assessors and the facility educational exposure to new ideas with regard to quality systems.

The AABB Accreditation Assessor Program has been granted accreditation by the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua).
