IQMH is seeking volunteers to sit on its Proficiency Testing Scientific Committee(s), effective January 2024. Membership on committees consists of a three-year term of office, renewable once. Committees meet an average of four times a year for half-day or full-day meetings.
The WorldLab – EuroMedLab conference was held in Rome, Italy this year from May 21–25, where former IQMH scientific committee member, Paul M. Yip, who served as a member on the Chemistry committee from 2010–2020 and as Chair from 2017–2020, presented a virtual poster on understanding how medical laboratories manage reference intervals and post-analytical reporting of ferritin, and the future of harmonizing reporting across Canada.
Melanie is the Regional Discipline Manager for Transfusion Medicine in Tissue Typing/DNA and Molecular Diagnostics at Eastern Ontario Regional Laboratory Association (EORLA). She has been a member of the Transfusion Medicine Scientific Committee since 2012 and highlights the value she has gained from attending committee meetings and working collaboratively with other experts from across Ontario.
Each April, The Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) recognizes the critical role of medical laboratory professionals in the health care system.
