The NKH consists of an average of 30 members (quality officers, quality coordinators or professionals with a quality focus area) from all stem cell transplant centers in the Netherlands and is led by two coordinators who chair. The members include representatives of the EBMT, Matchis and the national representative FACT-JACIE. NKH is represented in national and European bodies: Quality management Group EBMT, HOVON SCT group, V&VN, transplant coordinators.
The NKH operates independently in terms of content. Participation in the NKH is reserved for "professionals" who are engaged in development and maintenance of quality systems within hematology centers. NKH is freely accessible to third parties, if these persons have an input with regard to technical and / or theoretical knowledge transfer. You can register for the NKH via the chairperson.
Twice a year all members meet at different locations in the Netherlands.
