For most laboratories, participating in Proficiency Testing and/or External Quality Assessment is mandatory. For some laboratories, participating in Peer Group monitoring is an added plus. For all labs that take part in such programs, there are a dizzying array of statistics and graphs that accompany their results and reports.

But what numbers really matter? If your SDI is acceptable, does that mean your lab is performing well, or just that the lab isn't performing terribly? How many graphs do you need to look at in the report?

This zoom will define and demystify the statistics and displays of PT, EQA, and Peer Groups.
*Learn what's essential in EQA
*Focus on the key statistics in PT and EQA
*Tap into your Peer Group data to isolate peculiar problems
*Triangulate your troubleshooting with data from two or three programs.
*Decouple your "passing" PT score from an objective assessment of acceptable performance

Who Should Attend:

  • Clinical, hospital, and reference laboratory stakeholders.
  • Laboratory directors, laboratory managers, quality managers.
  • Clinical laboratory scientists and technicians.
