    Biography

      Dr. Nichols received his B.A. in General Biology/Premedicine from Revelle College, University of California at San Diego.  He went on to complete a Masters and Doctorate in Biochemistry from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.  Jim was a fellow in the Postdoctoral Training Program in Clinical Chemistry at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN.  He is board certified in both Clinical Chemistry and Toxicological Chemistry by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry.  Dr. Nichols spent several years as Associate Director of Clinical Chemistry, Director of Point-of-Care Testing, and an Associate Professor of Pathology at Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions.  Jim later served as Medical Director of Clinical Chemistry for Baystate Health in Springfield, MA and was a Professor of Pathology at Tufts University School of Medicine.  Dr. Nichols' research interests span evidence-based medicine, information management, laboratory automation, point-of-care testing and toxicology.


    Abstract

    The effective use of Quality Control (QC) does not stop once QC results are accepted and patient testing begins. The key to reliable patient results and consistent laboratory processes is by managing QC data generated from multiple instruments. Dr. Nichols will discuss how to review and manage QC data, provide practical advice on using QC to assess laboratory performance, and offer guidance on troubleshooting QC trends and shifts.

    In this webinar, learn how to obtain and analyze information from your QC data to ensure the quality of your laboratory systems.

    After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

    • Review QC data for shifts and trends
    • Critically assess laboratory performance against peers
    • Identify the danger of making frequent QC range adjustments
