Event Description

This presentation provided information on developing and implementing the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA) Individualized Quality Control Plan (IQCP), an all-inclusive approach to improving the quality of your test results. Developing an IQCP allows testers to have a quality control plan specific to the specific point-of-care test device or system, testing location, and personnel performing the test.

Event Objectives

  • Recognize common sources of laboratory errors 
  • Identify Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) EP23 guideline as a resource for risk management and building an IQCP 
  • Recognize the variety of engineered control processes manufacturers have built into point-of-care testing (POCT) devices
