“Slow down, calm down, don’t worry, don’t hurry, trust the process.”
- Alexandra Stoddard

This quote by Alexandra Stoddard was the living embodiment of the laboratory management and staff at the National Institute of Public Health (NIPH), Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Their process to accreditation was a few years in the making, and they showed great patience working through each step with guidance from the CDC team and IQMH. Their full dedication to “Trusting the process” got them to their endpoint – ISO 15189 Accreditation. Congratulations NIPH! Your hard work and dedication have paid off!

Our IQMH Quality Team kicked off the year with a redesign of our Quality Team’s display board located in the staff kitchen. In keeping with the team’s objective to building awareness of Lean and some key methods and concepts in quality improvement, the team created a board to build awareness of the 5S Method. They have also scheduled monthly 5S events for 2019. We use the 5S method to help set our workplace in order and the IQMH Quality Team strives to make 5S a way of life with regularly scheduled 5S events.
