Overview

Laboratory Management addresses common issues and errors seen in the laboratory management process. The goal is to enable the laboratory manager to avoid or correct such errors by both individual effort and a systems approach in the laboratory. The book addresses potential issues in accreditation and regulatory compliance, laboratory and patient safety, quality management, financial management, human resources management, specimen processing logistics, performance standards, selection and management of commercial laboratories and much more. Each of these can have an adverse impact on the laboratory performance if a management error occurs. Potential management errors are described and discussed in a clinical case-based learning format to effectively illustrate the conditions that contribute to these errors and enable the laboratory manager to recognize and avoid them in daily practice.
