IQMH relies on health care experts such as physicians, scientists and medical laboratory technologists to provide technical and clinical advice as members of the Proficiency Testing (PT) Scientific Committees. They support PT Consultant Technologists in the fundamental design of proficiency testing surveys, ensure challenges are clinically-relevant and appropriate performance evaluation is developed and implemented each year.
A requirement of The College ofMedical Laboratory Technologists of Ontario (CMLTO) Quality Assurance Program states that practicing medical laboratory technologists (MLTs) must complete 30 hours of professional development in three different activity types. Continuing education or professional development hours allow members to maintain and enhance their knowledge in the ever-changing environment of medical laboratory science, an important component for improving their professional practice as self-regulated healthcare professionals.
Georgina Ralevski joined the IQMH team as Director, Centre for Proficiency Testing in July 2021. Georgina is a medical laboratory technologist (MLT) where she worked in a public health laboratory setting for over 32 years.
