  • Sridevi Devaraj, PhD, University of California
  • The clinical utility of Vitamin D has been the subject of much research in recent years. Recently articles have been published that conclude this vitamin can help prevent or postpone the onset of diabetes and reduce complications in those who already have the disease. The biology of Vitamin D and its clinical impact as well as methods for testing its levels will be covered in this session.

$20.00


  • Mary Lowery Nordberg, PhD, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Feist-Weiller Cancer Center
  • JAK2 mutations characterize subtypes of myeloproliferative disorders, including polycythemia vera and essential thrombocythemia. Other mutations, such as BCR/ ABL1, ABL1 kinase and PDGFR also help to define and provide essential criteria for classifying these diseases. These mutations and others will be covered and used to exemplify the role of molecular pathology in the diagnosis and prognosis of these disease entities.

  • Lynn S. Garcia, MS, CLS(NCA), FAAM, LSG & Associates
  • These case studies will provide practical and cost effective information related to specimen collection, processing, testing, organism identification, reporting (including report comments), consultation, and risk management aspects (STAT vs. routine testing) of diagnostic medical parasitology. Methods, protozoa, helminths, and blood parasites will be represented.

  • Richard Alexander, MPH, PHM(CA), Orange County Health Care Agency
  • The 2009Ė2010 Influenza season began atypically in the summer of 2009 with the appearance of a new strain of Influenza A virus and became a pandemic by the fall. Where and when did influenza activity first occur? How did the illness spread? Which influenza viruses circulated? What changes occurred in the virus? What was the measurable impact the epidemic had on illnesses and 378 deaths? What effect did the vaccines have on the epidemic? What advances in laboratory testing helped to identify and track the epidemic? What effect did bacterial co-infections have on mortality? What about next season?

Download Format(s) :
MP3,SAV
$20.00


  • Mary Lowery Nordberg, PhD, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Feist-Weiller Cancer Center
  • Recurrent genetic abnormalities have heralded in a new classification scheme in both myelodysplasia and acute leukemias. Classification schemes have been modified to include mutations such as FLT3, NPM, CEBPA, and others. How these abnormalities influence diagnoses and outcomes of patients with these diseases and clinical integration will be discussed.

  • Cindy Johnson, MS, CLS(NCA), CentraCare Health System Jeremy Angell, BA, ClPlb(NCA), CentraCare Health System
  • National patient safety goals have thrust attention on error reduction in the healthcare industry. Laboratory errors put our patients at risk of harm. This presentation outlines key patient safety strategies successfully implemented in the pre-analytical phases of testing. Several of these initiatives have been adopted throughout other areas of the health system.

  • Rick Panning, MBA, MLS(ASCP)CM, Allina Hospitals and Clinics
  • In 2000 the Minnesota Healthcare Education and Industry Partnership (HEIP) began a laboratory task force to address workforce shortage issues for laboratory professionals. This task force has now met monthly for 10 years and has enjoyed significant success in stabilizing and expanding the clinical laboratory education programs in the state. CLS capacity increased from <50 students per year to approximately 175 in the fall of 2009. CLT and HT programs have also been expanded in the state. New programs have been started and current programs have been stabilized and expanded. This session will review the different strategies implemented to ensure this level of success and the next steps we are taking to take these initiatives forward to meet the future workforce needs.
