The IQMH office is closed to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We have moved to a virtual office. More info: IQMH Response to COVID-19.
On behalf of all of us at IQMH, we would like to offer our thanks to our laboratory colleagues during this difficult COVID-19 pandemic.
In recognition of National Volunteer Week, we would like to thank all the dedicated laboratory professionals who generously donate their time and expertise. We have many volunteers to thank: Scientific Committee members, Accreditation Assessors, and Slide Assessors.
To defeat COVID-19 everyone has to do their part. Accreditation Canada, Health Standards Organization Institute for Quality Management in Healthcare and our partners have released a suite of resources to support health care and social service workers and their organizations.
IQMH is in the process of moving to a completely virtual office. Since March 16, 2020, the majority of staff have been working from home connected to our server and applications through a secure VPN.
There are times it feels difficult to believe that the holiday season is almost upon us once again. This year seems to have gone by especially quickly! I guess the old adage about time appearing to pass by faster and faster the older you get is true—at least for me! In any case, here we are, and I’d like to take this opportunity to wish you peace, hope and joy during the holiday season, and throughout 2020.
IQMH is seeking a volunteer to sit on its Proficiency Testing Scientific Committee, effective January 1, 2020. 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.
A gathering of diagnostic medicine leaders and professionals who want to elevate themselves, learn, share, network and get excited about diagnostic medicine; an IQMH Forum is never a typical conference. Why? Each event is underpinned with a specific theme and intention to ensure the programme will drive meaningful change and infuse a new outlook on quality. Our aim is to energetically inspire the diagnostic medicine community to overcome barriers and embrace the future.
The official podcast of the Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) The Objective Lens speaks with professionals who can best provide professionals with insight and tools to navigate challenges unique to the medical laboratory.
