CLIA (Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments) Guidelines on Quality Control and Quality Assessment
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:
AS CLIA evolves, so must the laboratory. The rules and regulations governing how quality is measured in the lab and how quality control is performed have changed over time. New requirements make it essential that you understand mindset of CLIA, and what they expect to see when they show up at your laboratory. There is no longer a “one size fits all” mentality and laboratories are now required to take more responsibility in how they measure quality performance and in how they maintain quality. All regulatory agencies have adopted new rules to measure both QA and QC.
This webinar will explore why the changes took place, how to meet the changes in regulation, and how to develop effective tools to aid in compliance.
