STEM CELL TECHNOLOGIST: THE NEED FOR RECLASSIFICATION BY PATTY BAKKESTAD-LEGARE ART,CHT,CHS


Who what why and how

Who, What, Why, and How

  • Laboratory Technologist working in the field of Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation

  • To provide a system to allow technologists to become specialist within the processing laboratories.

  • The complexity and uniqueness of services, the high level of responsibility , the ability for critical decision making and the lack of specific training.

  • Develop set standards with examinations both locally and nationally


Manitoba s experience

Manitoba’s Experience

  • HPSC Lab –dedicated lab provides service for adult, pediatric, autologous and allogenic transplants for MBMTP

  • Identified the need for reclassification for laboratory technologists in the HPSC Lab to Human Progenitor Cell (HPC) Technologists

  • Approved by the Lab Directors and Acting Director of MBMTP

  • Prepared Reclassification Proposal outlining the criteria and needs assessment which was reviewed and accepted by the union (MAHCP) and with CCMB Human Resources

ASHI/ABHI Classification -HLA

  • CHS- Certified Histocompatibilty Specialist

  • CHT -Certified Histocompatibilty Technologist

  • CHA - Certified Histocompatibilty Associate


Documentation

Documentation

Revised job descriptions –(ISCT has developed job descriptions)

Developed an extensive training program with examinations (45 HPSC Lab SOPS and 17 QA SOPS)

Internal and external proficiency testing for all technologists

Continuing Education hours may include teleconferences (AABB,ISCT), local seminars on relevant topics, scientific meetings which may include poster or oral presentations

Developed competency based objectives for HPSC processing
