Communication Practices with the Laboratory as Part of Your Diagnostic Process

  • 1.  Communication Practices with the Laboratory as Part of Your Diagnostic Process

    Posted 22 days ago
    In our interview, which was included in the latest issue of ACT Update, COLA shared our support for initiatives that strengthen communication within the patient care team as a key opportunity area for improving diagnosis. As a laboratory accrediting organization, we are eager to learn how laboratorians are included throughout the diagnostic process and we are eager to share our own ideas that may benefit others. Can you share your communication model or practices with us, and, specifically, how you have included laboratory staff?
