This fun and interesting online workshop allows for anyone, anywhere, anytime to learn about EP23 and its intent to help simplify QC based on risk management.

 

The new EP23™ online workshop is a distance learning program that imparts the knowledge and skills necessary for the successful implementation of CLSI document EP23-A™—Laboratory Quality Control Based on Risk Management; Approved Guideline. The program consists of self-paced lessons followed by a homework assignment, an interactive, one-on-one online lesson, and an evaluation section.

Implementing the IQCP approach is an alternative QC option for replacing the existing equivalent quality control option.

 

Lesson #1: Risk Management Definition
Lesson #2: Example (An example explaining the concepts of EP23)

Lesson #3: Assessing Risk (A lesson showcasing new risk assessment concepts not typically used by laboratorians)
Lesson #4: The EP23 Implementation Workbook
Lesson #5: The EP23 Worksheet
Lesson #6: CMS/CLIA IQCP Requirements

 

The homework assignment (to be completed before participation in the online lesson) allows participants to create a quality control plan (QCP) for an analyte used in their health care settings.

 

During the online lesson, the participant will receive feedback and tips on enhancing their QCP example from a CLSI instructor. This online lesson interaction aims to answer any specific questions or concerns about implementing a successful QC program.
