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.
We are pleased to announce that the laboratory at Brant Community Healthcare System (BCHS) has achieved ISO 15189 Plus™ accreditation.
XXXIII International Symposium on Technical Innovations in Laboratory Hematology
IQMH is seeking volunteers to sit on its Proficiency Testing Scientific Committee(s) and Accreditation Advisory Panel, effective January 1, 2021. 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.
As previously communicated, IQMH has been operating as a virtual office since the physical office was closed in mid-March. We are now planning to gradually re-open with a very limited number of staff present on-site commencing on July 13, 2020 or thereabouts. However, the vast majority of IQMH staff will continue to work from home during this early phase.
A new Proficiency Testing Virology SARS-CoV-2 survey is now available.
You may experience service interruption on IQMH.org to Thursday, June 4, 2020 due to a major website migration project.
The service interruption may occur late in the afternoon on June 4 and is not expected to last longer than an hour.
Please make appropriate work-related arrangements in order to accommodate this service interruption.
June 9, 2020 marks World Accreditation Day (#WAD2020) a global initiative, jointly established by the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) and International Accreditation Forum (IAF), to raise awareness of the importance of accreditation.
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.
IQMH is proud to be part of the medical laboratory community! It’s important to us to share this pride by supporting National Medical Laboratory Week, an event sponsored by the Canadian Society of Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) since 1985.
CLSI recognizes the important contributions of laboratory professionals and the health care community and applauds their efforts in the global fight against COVID-19. CLSI has compiled a list of documents useful for laboratory testing during the current pandemic.
