  • Quality Control: Process Verification Prior to Distribution

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/07/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Strengthen your quality assurance program by learning how performing process verification before distribution can be essential to your organization’s operations.

    Quality Assurance is an important aspect of eye banking as it ensures that the corneal tissue that is provided for transplant, research, and education has gone through a series of processes and steps that have been validated and verified prior to distribution. Process verification enables an eye bank to catch any errors or deviations before the tissue is distributed.  The speakers will define and discuss process verification, presenting real case studies to highlight what happens if verification is not completed prior to distribution. 

    The session will include:
    • Discussion about the difference between verification and validation
    • Applicable FDA regulations and EBAA Medical Standards
    • The verification processes implemented by three different organizations
    • Case studies from two eye banks and changes that resulted
    • How to perform a CAPA and root cause analysis

    Strengthen your quality assurance program by learning how performing process verification before distribution can be essential to your organization’s operations.

  • Raising Your RQ (Remote Quotient)

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 09/25/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Join us for this session to learn more about living and working in a virtual world.

    We are now living in an exclusively virtual world. This happened fast, and many people are uncomfortable using digital platforms. They may feel exposed and awkward on videoconferences, fail to engage fully on conference calls, or feel disconnected, disoriented, and often depressed while working from home.

    In addition, the current volume of communication through familiar channels—phone and email contact—has increased exponentially but not necessarily advantageously. This dynamic seminar, delivered conversationally to encourage participation by Raleigh Mayer, the Gravitas Guru and senior fellow at the Logos Institute for Crisis Management and Executive Leadership, outlines the neuroscience involved in virtual engagement, as well as physical and psychological implications, the importance of performance when communicating with stakeholders, and the impact of organization and tone of content. We are living and working in a virtual world: We must master the culture. Register today!

    Louise Gaston, PhD

    Dr. Gaston, psychologist, has founded in 1990 a clinic specialized in PTSD, TRAUMATYS, in Canada, where she developed an integrative model for treating PTSD, which is flexible and open-ended. In addition, she elaborated a comprehensive 2-year training program in PTSD and trained more than 200 experienced clinicians in evaluating and treating PTSD. Thousands of individuals presenting with PTSD and comorbidity have been treated with this integrative model for PTSD. According to an independent and retrospective study, the associated PTSD remission rate is 96%: 48% complete and 48% partial. Dr. Gaston is the author of several book chapters and more than 40 scientific/clinical articles. 

    Since 1980, Dr. Gaston has been practicing psychotherapy, with a focus on stress, anxiety, and trauma. She has been trained and supervised over 15 years. She knows all major models of psychotherapy (dynamic, humanistic, cognitive, and behavioral) and has been trained over 5 years in treating personality disorders. 

    As a clinical researcher, Dr. Gaston collaborated with many colleagues in diverse settings. She has carried out two clinical trials. Her main research topic was the alliance in psychotherapy and its interaction with techniques as they contribute to better outcomes. In collaboration with Dr. Marmar, M.D., she has developed the California Psychotherapy Alliance Scale, CALPAS, a measure of the alliance in psychotherapy which is worldly used.

    In 1988, Dr. Gaston completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD and psychotherapy research, at the Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, University of California, San Francisco, under the supervision of Dr. Horowitz, M.D., author of Stress Response Syndrome, and Dr. Marmar, M.D., both ex-presidents of the International Society for Psychotherapy Research and the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies. Afterwards, she was assistant professor in the Department of psychiatry at McGill University in Canada from 1988 to 1994. Dr. Gaston elaborated scales on the MMPI-2 to assess PTSD in civilians. For many years, Dr. Gaston has provided courses of continuing education across the USA: Integrating Treatments for PTSD, Trauma and Personality Disorders, Memories of Abuse and the Abuse of Memory, and Ethics Working for You. Nowadays she writes and teaches on PTSD. She is co-editor of the magazine Combat Stress.
