The clinical laboratory’s essential role in healthcare is growing in importance as the bridge between advances in the basic sciences and clinical practice. Bringing our knowledge to the individual patient care encounter by serving as clinical consultants is an important goal. The principal aim is to improve patient care while demonstrating the value of clinical laboratorians in expanded roles. As expectations in healthcare put increasing emphasis on quality and cost-effectiveness, there are real opportunities for clinical laboratorians to expand your sphere of influence within your organizations, but these can be a challenge to achieve. What strategies are available, and how does one build and expand a consultant role within a health care organization?
This webinar will highlight the need for increasing your role as consultants in the clinical care process, as leaders in laboratory resource utilization, and as leaders in hospital quality initiatives.
