A2LA Offers ISO 15189:2012 and Medical Laboratory Accreditation Training

The American Association for Laboratory Accreditation (A2LA) offers the training course, “ISO 15189:2012 and Medical Laboratory Accreditation,” created specifically for medical testing laboratory personnel. The course is set for Nov. 4-5 at the Courtyard Atlanta Downtown in Atlanta, Ga. Cost will be $745 for A2LA members and $795 for non-members.

This course will use lecture, discussion and interactive exercises to provide a comprehensive review of the newly revised and recently published ISO 15189:2012 standard. Specific instruction will focus on the more difficult requirements of the standard such as measurement uncertainty and management review. Through the implementation of ISO 15189, attendees will be able to use a systems view of quality management to better design and implement laboratory functions, to create a total laboratory process that addresses the principles of quality medical laboratory services, and to implement pre-examination, examination and post-examination processes essential to patient care.
