    Biography
      Donna is Quality Assurance (QA) Manager, Specialty Testing Supervisor, Special Coagulation and Special Hematology at New York Presbyterian Hospital- Columbia in New York City. She has 34 years clinical laboratory experience, 6 years industry clinical trial experience, including PhD work on Standardization of Laboratory Testing (all but dissertation). Donna has written several book chapters, many publications and presented many coagulation lectures to diverse audiences at all levels of expertise. She is adjunct professor at York College and Rutgers University. Donna presently serves on the Executive Committee of the North American Specialized Coagulation Laboratory Association (NASCOLA) as a Secretary, Publication Committee and Pre-Curriculum Committee for the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP), and the Expert Committee for Hematology for the Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI). She is also a member of International Society on Thrombosis and Haemostasis (ISTH), International Society for Laboratory Hematology (ISLH) and ASCP.

    Abstract:

    Case studies to practice problem solving in the coagulation laboratory will be presented during this webinar. It will review pre-analytical issues impacting results as well as testing patterns that can be both cost effective while optimizing patient outcomes. Coagulation disorders and dedicated assays can be complex for newcomers and the best results are obtained when testing is approached in a logical, step by step manner. Understanding the importance of accurate screening results in the diagnosis and management of patients will only improve the information the laboratory provides to clinicians.

    Learning objectives:

    •  Identify proper testing to aid in the diagnosis of bleeding or clotting disorders
    •  Perform best coagulation practices to help maximize negative outcomes while minimizing costs
    •  Enhance problem solving skills by presentation of applicable case studies
