GLP and Compliance for a Clinical Laboratory's Incident Management Plan
This GLP training will guide you in developing your laboratory's incident management plan to ensure that your laboratory policies and procedures are in compliance and your patients, visitors and staff are protected from accidents or unexpected events.
Why Should You Attend:
Approximately 60% to 80% of the information a physician uses to diagnose and treat patients, comes from Clinical and Anatomic Laboratories. This information need to be timely and as accurate as possible. Many mechanisms are already in place to assure just these outcomes. When potential incidents do arise, a well defined Incident Management Plan is needed.
This session will use the Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) to guide you in the development and maintenance of your laboratory's incident management plan to ensure that your laboratory policies and procedures are in compliance and your patients, visitors and staff are protected from accidents or unexpected events. You will learn how the laboratory’s incident management plan can play a major role in investigating and reducing potential issues. A well developed and maintained Plan can prevent serious legal consequences as well.
