Use four key numbers to model and evaluate differing method quality. Select true values and TEa limits for Q.C. simulators. Simulate case studies in competency exercises to hone optimize your ability to interpret both visual and numerical information of quality.

After successful completion, you will be able to describe, practice, and demonstrate competence to:

  • Describe Performance Standards and the role they play in laboratory quality.
  • Locate online sources of performance standards (allowable error limits).
  • Select the best -attainable and defensible- TEa limits for Q.C. samples using the Stockholm Hierarchy.
  • Identify clinical errors that be detected by method validation studies.
  • Identify clinical errors that can, and cannot, be detected by Q.C. charts and rules.
  • Recognize patient risks if Q.C. samples fail to mirror patients.
  • Choose a true value for each control sample from a hierarchy of sources.
  • Describe Margin for Error and the role it plays in laboratory quality.
  • Use a Q.C. simulator to model methods with differing accuracy, precision, true values, or TEa limits.
  • Evaluate relative method quality by examining Performance BarZ.
  • Calculate relative method quality as the Margin for Error.
  • Relate numerical and visual information from differing methods.
