ASM is a supporter of National Medical Laboratory Professionals Week and is providing three simple suggestions to enhance your Lab Week experience.
Inform friends/family about tests you perform - visit Labtests Online where you can find information on microbiology tests and others! Click here for FREE displays that can serve as valuable resources for your patients and caregivers to explain lab tests....especially during Lab Week!
Invite someone from your "infectious diseases team" (e.g. physician, infection preventionist, pharmacist, etc.) to sit down with you during Lab Week to see if there is one thing that your lab can do to help your team better serve your patients.
If not already a member, join ASM and/or another professional organization - see "What ASM offers Clinical Microbiologists". You may be surprised how much ASM does to ensure clinical microbiology is recognized among healthcare disciplines! Strengthening ASM through your membership will guarantee this continued support.
