EditorIQMH delivers extraordinary IQMH Fall Forum on Innovations in Cancer Diagnostics


On November 7–8, 2019, IQMH hosted a forum centred  on innovations in cancer diagnostics. It is our belief that live events such as this are a valuable contribution to the sharing of knowledge among laboratory professionals. 


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.
