This pocket-sized resource focuses on core issues in achieving quality in all areas of haematopathology and immunology, with an emphasis on identifying established, evidence-based standards. It addresses potential problems and sources of error in management of haematology and immunology testing procedures, how to anticipate and avoid such problems, and how to manage them if they occur. Concise and practical, discussions are problem-based and directly address common situations and issues faced by clinical pathologists or members of a laboratory team. The book provides plentiful examples of errors which compromise patient safety. Discussion of each problem is augmented by an actual case discussion to illustrate how the problem can occur and how to deal with it effectively. Chapters examine point-of-care testing, paediatric testing, laboratory information systems and HER integration, and outreach testing. Both traditional morphology and advanced techniques including protein electrophoresis are covered. Cases are enhanced by the varied perspectives of lab managers and administrators.
