The Academy of Diagnostics & Laboratory Medicine creates guidance documents that impart the expertise of the Academy’s Fellows. These short documents are designed to provide guidance on hot topics in the field of laboratory medicine in an expedient manner that will achieve maximum impact.
Recent documents cover topics such as chronic kidney disease, procalcitonin, and cervical cancer detection.
You can view all published guidance documents and learn more about proposing ideas for new documents here.
The Academy Scientific Shorts is a forum in which clinical laboratory professionals can discuss contemporary laboratory issues—from molecular pathology and genetics to patient safety—and present solutions and best practices.
