  • This Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) training will be valuable to CLIA regulated, non-waived laboratories that run automated analyzers or semi-quantitative kit tests. It will highlight differences between quality control and quality assessment and the proper methods to meet CLIA guidelines.

    Why Should You Attend:
    All non-waived laboratories must have a QC and QA plan that meets CLIA’s regulations. CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) has updated its requirements for QC and QA. CLIA has replaced the term Quality Assurance with the term Quality Assessment. The new guidelines regarding QA specifically stress measuring quality through all aspects of the testing process. This includes pre-analytical, analytical, and post-analytical parts of the process as a whole. QA is now focused on measuring outcomes and developing actions based on findings. The Quality Control process has guidelines in place for all three levels of testing; Waived, Moderately Complex and High Complexity. QA must be assessed, not check listed. Without measurement of quality your lab is missing an important component of assure quality outcomes.

    Areas Covered in the Webinar:
    -Quality Assurance vs. Quality Assessment: Why the Change?
    -The Three Phases of Testing.
    -Quality Assessment Systems That Work.
    -Quality Control: Principles and Practice.
