Number of Credits
This series of 15 courses is designed to help you implement Quality Management Systems in your laboratory. QMS: Introduction to Quality Management in the Medical Laboratory introduces the concept of quality management systems (QMS) and the quality system essentials (QSEs). The series continues with courses focusing on each of the 12 QSEs to gain in-depth knowledge of these important building blocks of quality and the path of workflow. Also included in the series are two “how to” courses that will guide you in process flowcharting and developing a quality manual for your laboratory’s quality management system.
This course program offers P.A.C.E.® credit only. Successful completion of all courses in the program will earn 21 P.A.C.E. credits.
