Clinical laboratory workers believe that the work they perform in providing laboratory tests is valuable. However, data to validate this has been limited, and evidence of the contribution of laboratory medicine to the overall process of diagnosis and management is not easy to obtain. This session will describe the work of the IFCC Task Force on the Impact of Laboratory Medicine on Clinical Management and Outcomes. It will examine existing evidence, review the gaps in our understanding and deficiencies in the way laboratory medicine is used, and indicate how these can be remedied.
