This is a practical four-hour workshop designed to train students and bench technicians on the nuts and bolts of quality control techniques to improve laboratory medicine. The workshop, which includes practical exercises, will explore the following topics:
- What is quality control and why is it important?
- How to implement quality control
- Westgard Rules
- Best practices in quality control
With content originally designed for audiences outside the U.S., AACC has successfully delivered similar, longer-format workshops in Bolivia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, and Peru.
Members of AACC’s Asia-Pacific and Latin American Working Groups – Alicia Algeciras-Schimnich, Barbara Goldsmith, Qinghe Meng, Rosa Sierra-Amor (chair, Latin American Working Group), and Victoria Zhang (chair, Asia-Pacific Working Group) – will deliver the workshop.
Registration for the workshop will also include a coffee break.
Who Should Attend
This session is intended for technologists, supervisors, directors, in-vitro diagnostic researchers, development scientists, and clinical chemistry students.
Please note that registration for this event is completely independent from registration for the AACC Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo. If you would like to attend both events, please make sure to register individually for each one.
