As lab professionals, our clients expect a lot from us. We also expect a lot of ourselves. We need to know and understand what we do and why we do it. We all have things we thought we understood… until we had to explain them to someone else.

  • Can you list the most common lab mistakes?
  • Do you really know how to avoid Laboratory error?
  • Are Quality Assurance and Quality Control the same thing?
  • What happens when a test instruction is not followed?
  • “I know what I’m doing!  What difference does a standard make?”

Take your profession to another level. 

CQA Lab lessons can help you stay on top of things, with a broader, deeper understanding of the fundamentals.

  • As a medical professional, you depend on laboratory evidence for up to eighty percent of your medical decisions.
  • Do you really appreciate the full potential or the limitations of laboratory technologies and how they impact those important decisions?
 
  1. Do doctors need labs to arrive at a diagnosis?
  2. What are sensitivity and specificity of a lab test anyway?
  3. Are test results always reliable?
  4. What can go wrong?

Get updates on critical lab principles. As clients of the Lab, CQA Lab Lessons can help you get the most value from lab services by improving your understanding of critical principles in lab operations and technology, thus increasing their power and reliability as part of your decision making process.

As an informed patient, you make it your business to know everything you can about your condition. A lot of that understanding is related to laboratory results and their interpretation.

  • Is the test result always a clear “yes” or “no”?
  • How often are lab tests wrong?
  • What are false positives and false negatives?
  • What does it mean if my test result is outside the reference range (low or high)?
  • Is an abnormal test result always a sign of a real problem?
  • If all my test results are within range, does it mean I have nothing to worry about?

CQA Lab Lessons can help you make better sense of what is happening to you by clarifying all of these issues concerning your Lab test results.
