    Why Should You Attend:
    The CLIA inspection process can be nerve wracking. If you are not prepared, you will feel intimidated and unsure of the outcome. The good news is, with a little preparation, the inspection can be just another day.
    This webinar will go through the steps to successful preparation, proper review of all records, and preparation of your mindset. It will also address the actions that need to be taken if the inspection does not go well and the deficiencies are numerous. There are required steps and specific deadlines that must be met in response to the inspection outcome.
    In the US, most laboratory inspections result in deficiencies. Most are minor but small percentages are considered “conditional deficiencies”. These are deficiencies that must be corrected for the lab to be able to continue operating. During this webinar, the instructor will go through the necessary steps involved in making these corrections.
