About the course
This 8 week course, providing 16 hours CPD, to support practitioners in using and combining laboratory tests for different clinical case scenarios. The workshops will build upon the foundations within the LABtalks course, to understand how to interpreting and trouble-shooting when a combination of health issues and inconsistencies within test results are apparent.
The slides provided within the LABtalks course will be used as a recurring resource to reinforce the learning already acquired. LABplay attendance will only be possible for those who have booked the LABtalks course already, so that everyone can get the most out of the workshops.
Whether reviewing tests ordered previously by another healthcare practitioner, or offering your own testing suggestions, there is a lot to think about and it is natural that sometimes it is hard to know where to start. This workshop series is designed to make that process feel clearer and more accessible. Context-based prioritisation limits will encourage reflection, discussion and understanding of how and why to decide whether to order one test or another.
Brief, facilitated discussions, with additional supportive resources, will encourage constructive, critical comparisons of different tests and products provided by commonly used laboratories. Considering their strengths and limitations will not only help to prioritise, but also promote reflective practice and consider ethics, quality assurance (eg. laboratory accreditation) and evidence-based practice.
Attendance at all 8 sessions will be required for CPD certification, though if you do miss any sessions, you will be able to catch-up next time the course runs.
