It may be argued that Histotechs are not properly classified as High Complexity Testing personnel under current CLIA/CAP guidelines and as such, are not subject to annual competency assessment. Yet more and more organizations are standardizing proficiency testing, drawing Histology staff and Technical Assistants into the fold. If so, where to begin? This presentation will offer some tried and true, cost-effective solutions to tame the looming menace, along with a more robust solution offered by the CAP Online Competency Assessment Program. Participants should leave satisfied that they, too, can calm their fears and face the Medusa-like challenge through a combination of knowledge, experience, and creativity.
This webinar is part of the 2020 Laboratory Webinar Series. Laboratory Webinars are a great, inexpensive way to provide continuing education to a large number of employees. The cost for each session is the same regardless of the number of attendees.
