6. Accreditation of training centres

For each EU Member State a list of centres, units, training directors (tutors) and other teachers should be compiled and updated on an annual basis.

A centre must have received accreditation for training and the training tutor (director) must have been practising Paediatric Haematology and Oncology for at least 5 years after the completion of his/her training. When a training module cannot be provided by the centre, it must be taught elsewhere. Neighbouring centres may collaborate in order to provide a complete training programme.

Accreditation will be given initially by the national training body and ultimately by SIOPE and ESPHI. The inspection and approval process will follow the EU Guidelines currently in preparation.
