UK NEQAS Haematology webinar: Morphology - Objective Analysis in a Subjective World

A webinar to explain the recent introduction of shadow performance scoring for Blood Films and Morphology, how the dual assessment works, both median and expert flags and how to compare yourself to your peers. The target audience is UK NEQAS Haematology participants, so that they can gain as much knowledge about how to assess their laboratory's performance when assessing blood film morphology against their peers and against the expert commentators. Participants will come away from the session feeling more confident to analyse their reports and spot problems early before they start receiving poor performance scores. This webinar is free and will take place 11am-12pm with speaker Andrea Teuchert.
