    Abstract:

    This session will look at the common issues that can impact quality in the coagulation laboratory and result outcomes.  Implementing a good quality management system and being able to conduct a root cause analysis can not only solve problems, but can help to establish protocols that will prevent them in the future. Information will be presented in a case study format to highlight real-life case scenarios and how laboratories can handle and prevent future issues to ensure they can optimize their coagulation testing and patient care.

    Objectives:

    • Identify solutions in areas of coagulation that can be enhanced by implementing good laboratory practices and standard operating procedures
    • Analyze real-life case studies and how to troubleshoot testing to determine root cause and steps to prevent reoccurrence.
    • Enhance general knowledge of coagulation standards and methods
