Quality Management Education Resources (QMEd)

Looking to Improve Your Laboratory’s Quality?

You’re not alone. In a 2017 survey conducted by the CAP, 97% of respondents said improving quality and patient safety was very important. In the same survey, 84% of respondents placed high value on improving operational efficiency. Many laboratories face the challenge of finding and applying quality management tools correctly across all areas and personnel.

How Quality Management Education (QMEd) Resources Help

With training and tools, your laboratory can improve testing outcomes, increase your laboratory’s throughput, and work to better the broader organization’s quality of patient care. Our QMEd modules provide clear guidance on tasks and requirements laboratories often find difficult to implement. With practical topics ranging from root cause analysis to mistake proofing, QMEd courses:

  • Help your laboratory improve testing outcomes
  • Work to improve the broader organization’s quality of patient care
  • Provide laboratory management and personnel with quality improvement tools

We used the QMEd classes and reviewed them several times. They were so helpful! I would encourage other laboratories to use them. They are good training tools for new internal auditors and other supervisory level employees.
