Designing Risk Managed QC Strategies  
Horiz line purple

Wednesday, April 18, 2018
1:00 – 2:00 PM EDT  | 12:00 – 1:00 PM CDT
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM MDT  |  10:00 – 11:00 AM PDT

Horiz line purple 2
PACE® and Florida Laboratory
Credit will be available

This basic level webinar is produced by Whitehat Communications
and sponsored by Bio-Rad Laboratories.
If you test enough samples, in Clinical diagnostics some of the results are going to be incorrect.  Those incorrect results carry with them the potential for harming patients. The goal of risk management in the clinical laboratory is to manage the risk of patient harm stemming from an incorrect result, keeping patients exposure to harm at an acceptable level.
Vertical line 7AB0D4 blue Designing a risk managed QC strategy allows labs to assess and mitigate the risk of producing patient harm. The webinar will describe the risk managed approach to QC and provide examples of actual QC design as well as the impact to labs who utilize risk managed QC strategies. The webinar will also describe how risk-managed QC strategies allow labs to overcome the limitations of historical QC design by considering test method reliability and the clinical utility of the test.

He is currently enrolled in the Sequence Analysis and Genomics Post Master’s Advanced Academics Program at Johns Hopkins University. He has 25 patents on laboratory related inventions and quality control systems in the US, Australia, Canada, China and Japan. John frequently speaks and writes about quality related issues at domestic and international conferences.
This webinar will:
Who should attend:
  • Analyze how test method performance, reliability, and clinical utility affect our tolerance for erroneous results
  • Describe the method of determining an acceptable probability of patient harm
  • Discuss the method of computing a predicted probability of patient harm for a test method
  • Describe how to compute a risk management index, comparing predicted probability of patient harm with acceptable probability of patient harm
  • Laboratory directors and administrators
  • Laboratory managers and supervisors
  • Point-of-care coordinators
  • Medical technologists
