The Diagnostic Standards of Care series presents common errors associated with diagnoses in clinical pathology, using case examples to illustrate effective analysis based on current evidence and standards. Each volume demonstrates the use of quality assurance and the role of the pathologist in ensuring quality and patient safety.
Hematology and Immunology focuses on core issues in achieving quality in all areas of hematopathology and immunology, with an emphasis on identifying established, evidence-based standards. It addresses potential problems and sources of error in testing procedures, how to anticipate and avoid such problems, and how to manage them if they occur. Discussions are problem-based and address common situations and issues faced by clinical pathologists or members of a laboratory team. Using actual case studies, the book provides plentiful examples of errors, along with discussions on how to deal with them effectively.
