Enhance your understanding of how the organisational processes of medical laboratories can be improved by meeting the requirements of ISO 15819:2022 in this practical and highly interactive two-day course.

  • Overview

    Of particular interest to organisations considering embarking on their accreditation journey for diagnostic examination and testing in the laboratory, this course will support delegate understanding of the new ISO 15189:2022 standard relating to the competence and quality of Medical Laboratories. This course focuses on the sample pathway, to highlight the non-linear nature of diagnostic testing and how it can be designed to support the demonstration of conformance and competence to the latest ISO 15189 standard.

    Please ensure you read the minimum requirements for this course before booking to attend.
