On February 23rd, NAACLS was pleased to host its annual workshop prior to the annual Clinical Laboratories Educators Conference (CLEC) in Salt Lake City. This year’s workshop, titled The Standards, They are a Changing was presented by Jennifer McDonald, a NAACLS Board member and part of the NAACLS Standards Revision task force. The workshop was attended by 105 people and focused on the accreditation process and the anticipated evolution of the standards.
The presentation was supplemented with a question and answer session, where Ms. McDonald was assisted by NAACLS Standards Revision task force member Vanessa Jones Johnson. With the standards revisions still in progress, participants’ questions and concerns were taken back to the task force by Ms. McDonald and Ms. Jones Johnson.
NAACLS appreciates the opportunity to provide the workshop every year before CLEC. NAACLS also provides a workshop annually in Chicago in the fall. Topics and dates for the fall, or any other workshop, will be announced on the NAACLS News once all details are finalized.
