The latest Proficiency Testing Programs are now availble in the 2024 PT Catalogue.
To ensure product availability, orders should be placed no later than December 4, 2023. After this date, due to the number of samples available, surveys are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Public Health Ontario (PHO) and the Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare (IQMH) are pleased to present the results from their 2019 surveys of antimicrobial resistance in common hospital pathogens in Ontario. The surveys covered both rates of infection and infection control programs in place at Ontario hospitals and laboratories.
In our continual effort to improve our services, the Morphology section of the IQMH Hematology Scientific Committee conducted a review of the Morphology analysis worksheet, and several improvement opportunities were identified.
The following changes have been made to the analysis worksheet to reflect information found in current guidelines and published literature and are also expected to better support the move forward with providing digital images for future surveys.
PT disciplines such as Bacteriology, Mycology and Hematology-Morphology have indices of survey challenges/cases going back as far as 1975. These are updated regularly and can be found in QView™.
