HOW BECOME AN ECMM EXCELLENCE CENTER?
Per ECMM Member, i.e. the National Medical Mycology Societies, at least one centre per country should fulfil the quality criteria expanded below and serve as a local ECMM Excellence Center (ECMM EC) for patients with IFD.
Centers will only be nominated after careful onsite auditing.
Willingness to perform audits for the ECMM at other excellence centers is required.
An institution is designated initially for a term of four years; the designation may be renewed for the same or a shorter period.
MANAGEMENT AND EVALUATION
Any centre which fulfills the ECMM related requirements is encouraged to apply for a designation.
A final evaluation takes place at the end of the four‐year designation period by providing an informal report on changes and improvements made.
