Krasowski, MD, FASCP Arand Pierce, MD, FASCP Description: Intended Audience: Pathologist, Residents, Clinical Scientists, Laboratory Technologist/Scientist (Includes all sub-specialty areas)Students, Pathologist Assistants, Laboratory Directors and Educators Upon completion of this program, you will be able to: This interactive course covers four separate topics, the same quarterly AJCP/ACLPS Reviews published the preceding year. The topics for 2011 are: (1) pharmacogenetic warfarin dosing, (2) critical values, (3) drug induced hemolytic anemia, and (4) vitamin D testing. We will reprise this course at subsequent Annual Meetings using each year’s new review topics. Participants will evaluate the utility of testing and devise a consultation based on case based questions, e.g. for the first topic, whether and how to use a molecular testing algorithm for warfarin therapy. Besides medical knowledge, this activity will provide assessment of additional competencies in patient care (e.g. building an appropriate testing algorithm for hemolysis), professionalism (e.g Participants will identify, through an interactive format, a minimum of three "high performing" strategies for diagnostic interpretations as a key component to effective and timely pathology consultation in chemistry and hematology. These will include, but are not limited to: (a) evidence based establishment of critical values and reporting systems (practice based learning and interpersonal.
